Staring Into Face of Time

Three Line Tales, Week 165

It was to be a relaxing day, old friends getting together…just “being”, not being “something” or obliged to “do” anything.

We went to lunch, gorged on things we wouldn’t ordinarily afford; giggled and talked about everything we used to find so easy, comfortable when we were much younger.

Afterward, we stepped into the museum with clock tower that I’d never visited…I looked at Penny, not knowing if I should laugh or cry, and said, “it’s been a wonderful day with you, but what an ending—we’re staring straight into the face of Time”…then we hugged, laughing through tears together.
