Flash 55 - New Beginnings


I accidentally deleted this Flash 55 post. I am trying to reconstruct it. It was about doing things I don't usually do. I had a drink at 8am and the world did not end. Bits and pieces are there. I hope I have it saved somewhere. That's why this post looks funny.

Thank-you secrect agent woman from Blogging Incognito for emailing me a copy from your reader and here it is:


I’ve been trying things outside my comfort zones. 

Nothing major; just things I wouldn’t normally do; things others do without apparent bad consequences. Guilt covers me like a grey burial shroud; dry, dusty, dis-eased.

I drank a glass of wine at eight AM. 
I felt wicked, loose, free; not guilty; the world did not end.

I love it. 

I'm thinking about eating cookies for dinner tonight. Does that count?

Hi Nessa!
I knew yours would be good. Juice, wine....what's the dif? But I do have to have my coffee first.

Great 55! "And the world did not end." It's the weekend and time to live and be bad.

a glass of wine at 8 am - i like the feeling you catch with this - trying sth. new makes us feel like discovering ourselves newly - and even if it's only sth. small..

I remember a decedent vacation where the cream in my breakfast coffee was Bailey's Irish, and my iced-tea for lunch was Manhattan. I had wine with dinner and was back to drinking Bailey's and coffee for dessert. sigh One of my favorite retreats ever.

Alcohol in the morning? Not a problem. Alcohol all the time? Big problem.

I think on a Saturday or Sunday I'd try a wine at 8:00 a.m. Maybe this Sunday and see what happens.:)

Since the world did not end, Nessa, I am able to write this to you. (Love the Oscar Wilde quote too.)

While is shouldn't be surprising what doesn't kill us, somehow it is. Great 55. I should take more risk, but I will leave the wine out of it. Been there. Done that.

You've gotta let your hair down once in awhile, or you'll just have a pain in the neck. (LOL!) 

Keep stretching those limits; you 
never know what you'll discover about yourself.
