With shaking hands, Penelope returned her teacup to its saucer and looked around the room at each of the government officials that were packed in tight, like sardines in a tin can. Most were gentleman with a hard kindness reflected in their eyes as they waited patiently for her to begin, while others were clearly agitated that she was taking center stage, or more appropriately, center seat at the White House to reveal the truth that they didn’t want to hear. Once she had a good look at the men crowding the room, her eyes fell onto the President. His knowing smile and gleam in his eyes reassured her that he believed, which settled her nerves, so she began to deliver the disconcerting message of destruction that was destined for America if drastic measures were not taken to properly restore balance and faith in humanity. As a Shaman, Penelope traveled the realms and saw many things, and it was her duty to bring forth her visions and affect the physical world for the better.  The spirits whispered repeatedly that our demise on earth, would begin in America and would not be at the hands of evil gods, but rather at the hands of the selfish lost souls without faith who traveled the earth seeking greed and power, which would eventually spread around the globe and bring everyone down. It was time for individuals to show simple acts of kindness, respect, and love that would in turn restore balance and faith to the human race allowing people to unite and flourish while spending their time here on earth.


This post was inspired by Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday Image prompt, go visit her blog for details and join in on the fun!  Now that I got my post a day out of the way, had my coffee, it’s time to get this three-day weekend started properly and I think a mani and pedi is the next order of business because I’m selfish like that.. Wait no that’s not right, it’s not done solely for my benefit if you know what I mean. I’ll be back, but until then I’m wishing you all a splendid weekend – peace.

  1. aloha Kelly. again i like the story behind your thinking. i also like that altho the prompt (and story line) is a hard one to face, you present hope. to my thinking that is a valid write when pointing out things that may not be right. i like the way you approach these prompts and the storyness you explore. fun read. aloha.


  2. Great work. Love the way that is a shaman (and a woman as well) who sees beyond the propaganda to what’s really happening.


I love to hear from you, so drop me a line here - Thanks!
