Somebody That I used To Know

Daily Prompt: Earworm

Write whatever you normally write about, and weave in a book quote, film quote, or song lyric that’s been sticking with you this week.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us INSPIRATION.

You have lots of time to think when you are driving through the mountains as I did this past weekend. Contemplating the images that the clouds make as they hang  low in the sky, allowing the peaks of the mountains to touch them in such a way that is the earth intimately touching the sky. I pondered life and it’s delicate relationship to nature. I considered my own life and the people and things that bring me happiness. An old friend and  the memory of a private joke we once shared brought me a smile. For a fleeting second all the reasons we had drifted out of each others lives disappeared and all I remembered was that moment of simple joy where we simply laughed together the way only friends do. In the wisdom of my advancing years (haha I am 39) I decided that friends will come and go, some will always be there when you need them, some will live in your heart always, the memory of some will always have the power to make you smile. Some are toxic and maddening, draining the happiness out of your life till you are as useless as an empty ketchup bottle in the local greasy spoon. Others are as welcome in your home and thoughts as a bouquet of flowers on a day that you are not expecting anything at all. Others are just “Somebody That You Used to Know!”

  1. i was shown this video last summer and i love it more then the original… your writing is inspiring my friend, and always lifts me up. xoxo

  2. well written, life takes us in many different directions sometimes leaving friends that we know, only to make new ones, keep up the great writing Michelle.

  3. Can I merely say exactly what a relief to find someone who actually knows precisely what theyre speaking about on the internet. You certainly know how to carry an issue to be able to light and make it crucial. More people should read this and also understand this part of the tale. I find it difficult to believe you are not more popular simply because you definitely possess the gift.
