Share Your World – 2015-10-19: Week 42

I had to share my world this week!


This photo was taken late one afternoon when the rain cleared up a bit.

This is how it looks from the front door at my son’s place.

Share Your World – 2015 Week #42

The following questions are asked by Cee:

 Are you usually late, early, or right on time?  

I am always trying to be early. I hate it to be late and also if others don’t turn up on time.

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?

I love to write flash fiction stories. The shorter the better. My first e-book is out called Flash Fiction!

Where did you live at age ten?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

I lived near Pretoria, South Africa, in a rural town called Erasmia. Not the same place and even not the same country anymore!

Would you rather be able to fly or breathe under water?

Fly is better than under water. I am not very at ease in water.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am so grateful that I am healthy and have the opportunity to look after my son’s place and help him out running his small business while touring Europe for three weeks!

I also had the first lesson or session on writing short stories.

The coming week I looking forward to my second session on writing. I also look forward to finish off my book I have to complete for my “It’s Write Easy” for this year. I am doing this writing every Friday at our local library.

Thanks to Cee for hosting this challenge every week.


Upside down world. Picture it and write



“What is going on? Why am I not feeling anything? It feels as if I am in a vacuum!”

Katherine slowly opened her eyes. Quickly she shut them again.

“Oh, my head!” The sharp light made her shut her eyes for some time. Then she tried again, opening only one eye. “What is going on with me?” she asked herself again.

“Everything looks just so evasive, but wait!” Concentrating, looking through a little slit of her eye she saw something  unbelievable.

“Wow, that’s beautiful and so clear and bright. It looks as if I am looking at the world through a peephole.” She was so tired, she had to lie still with closed eyes again.

She tried the other eye and saw the same scene.

“Am I hallucinating? Why is everything upside down?  The clouds and sun can’t be under the voilage !”

Katherine passed out again.

The emergency team and police found her, unconscious, between the tall grass and vegetation. She could hear people talking to her. She wanted to ask them why she felt like this. She could not open her eyes again and she drifted off into the surrounding blackness.

“Katherine, Kathy can you hear me?” Katherine recognized the familiar voice of her best friend.

“Everything is okay, Kathy, you are save now. The police caught the people who did this to you.”  Katherine sank into a deep dreamless sleep, away from all the hurt.
