I aim to keep an equine focus, but some days you just wanna stray outside the pasture. When writing the Versatile Blogger entry, I trolled my brain for an evocative turn of phrase. The search algorithm returned ‘share a lifeboat’. Here’s why.
I am by myself in the lifeboat. We were four when we started. Sam realized he did not want to live without his wife. He swam back to the ship. Maureen thought she saw a helicopter. She stood to wave, overbalanced, and fell in the water. Jean leaned over the side to look for sharks. He fell in too.
I see people bobbing in the water but no one comes near my lifeboat. I prefer to be alone.
