100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Week# 54

I’m really late for Julia’s challenge this week. The prompt is ‘Legacy’ , the fourth in a series of Olympic themes, but people may have interpreted it in different ways. Check them here,


Oliver’s Legacy

Dear Oliver

You know, I wept every day for six months, I was so lost.

And now I’m angry. If you had had a car accident or even been attacked it would be different, but you had a choice, and you put diving first every time.

You said it was safe, no one died jumping off a high board. So what do you do? Get your Gold and then fool around, one step too far.

I can’t undo what’s happened. Olympia has arrived now; she looks at me with your eyes. Your legacy, but she will be frightened of water.




Travel Theme: Sunset

Ailsa has pushed my buttons this week, who can resist a sunset shot? As I have several on Lucid Gypsy, I had to try to pick something other than landscape. This one was taken in Pushkar, Rajasthan, at the Sunset Cafe a popular place to watch the world go by.
