LIVING VICARIOUSLY

 

jennysidebar_button_SAT-2[1]

This week, Jenny has given us a picture prompt and 100 words!  We are to write from the perspective of a nearby window in the photo.  I want to get inside Jenny’s head for a little while, just to see how her mind comes up with these interesting prompts.

LIVING VICARIOUSLY

(Prompt:  Looking from the window in the picture shown below)

 

 

SC Prompt[1]

From the window, I watch them run up and down the field. They don’t know me, but, in my head, they are my teammates and friends.  I cheer when our team scores and worry when one is injured. Now, checking their numbers, I fear that Number 2, whom I call “Julie”, is on the ground.  I intently watch as she bravely limps to the bench. 

From the bench, Julie cheers, and I join her in cheering.  I cheer for our team, Julie’s bravery, and my good fortune in having teammates and friends, in spite of my confinement to this wheelchair. 

Thank you for coming to read my perspective from the window.  To find links to other’s perspectives, go to Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent.  laurie

It would be hard to be the one watching but made much easier by the love of good friends.

Loved the story and being a cheerleader is such an important part for each one of the players to know that theya re cheered on.

Oh, this was sadly sweet.

My, that was pretty wistful. Well done.

Jenny said...

Oh Laurie. I loved this!

Absolutely loved this.

It made me sad and happy and reinforced in my mind how we never know peoples real stories.

Perhaps the kids on the field see her in that window?

Perhaps they wonder if she is stuck up because she doesn't come and play!

Wow.

I loved this!
