Monday Morning Flash Fiction Challenge, Week 72

Good Monday Morning!

I hope everyone had a splendid weekend! Me, I finally forced myself to start Christmas shopping... while there weren't a lot of crowds, anywhere.... There was also a limited selection. Which brings me to the wonderful world of gift cards. I promise to start earlier next year....

So... since it was an epic fail at shopping, I might as well do the Monday Morning Challenge, right? I hope everyone finds time to participate. It's Christmas this weekend, so I'll understand if some have to take a pass. I'm going to try to find time.

Around Christmas time, I try to find an image that both makes me think of Christmas as well as capture the feeling of mystery that I attached of the holiday. I mean, what's more mysterious than a man in suit who travels all over the world a the stroke of midnight to touch each life residing on Earth? Along with the past and the future?

This year I chose something that gives the lingering feeling of Christmas, but also that desolate feeling of aloneness.... lost in a winter wonderland. It can mean anything to anyone. Maybe it's the long journey home for the holiday, maybe it's a holiday to be celebrated in lonilness, and maybe it's that first snowfall on Christmas, and you're the very first person to leave footprints in it, the very first person to lay in the snow and make a snow angel. Maybe you're a child gazing from a frost window out at the wonder of the new fallen snow. Or maybe it's something sinister....  It can be anything.......

The rules remain the same 350 words (or there about) and come back Friday to post a response.

I'm truly enthrall with the image, but it doesn't mean it will be easy to write for. After all, I have to challenge myself too....

Everyone have a great week, and if I don't heard from you before Christmas... Have A Merry One!!

(((hugs and be blessed)))

Hm, I am thinking something dark for once...

That's a great picture. I can almost taste the ice in the air and hear the crunch of the snow.

Oh for some reason that brought the thoughts on Narnia to mind. :) Hmm, we will see if I'm able to get to do this, this week with all the wrapping and shopping I still have to do. Lovely pictures to write to though.

Thank you! And happy holidays. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. :)

I love gift cards, but I think I'm only giving one this year.

The picture seems sad to me.

B: I know it's Christmas and everything supposed to be lite and airy, but I was going for a darker take, can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Jennifer: Me too, almost can feel the frostbite, the cold nipping my nose. I think it could go dark or light when I think about it. Imagine a child looking over New York's Central Park, waiting for the first jingle of Santa's bells. Can't wait to see how you go!!

Mel: I think you're right, it could be very Narnia-ish!! I love the idea, a whole different take from my perspective. I'll be looking forward to your flash!

Carol: It could be very sad, imagine having to spend Christmas without any friends or family. Imagine being stranded alone, in the dark. Better stop there, I'm depressing myself!! I'll look forward to whatever you come up with sad or sweet!!!

((hugs to you all))

Dottie :)
