This week Denise of Girlie on the Edge's Blog picked the perfect cue for the blog hop she hosts. What immediately came to my mind was writing something about Jupiter and Saturn this week, but that wasn't what happened. I am linking up to Six Sentence Stories - Horizon.
It was impossible to see with the fog hanging low almost to the ground and obscuring most of the familiar scenery, but she knew the horizon was still there.
She never doubted for a minute that the thick forest of firs were there supporting one another with their thick branches extending outward and upward to their neighboring conifers and to an occasional deciduous tree now barren of almost all of its foliage.
Being unable to focus with her eyes on the now unseeable caused her to reflect on her memories tucked away inside her mind and heart bringing clarity, even joy for what had been instead of despair for what could have been.
With a ballpoint pen in hand she began to write the stories that came tumbling out onto the faintly lined pages of the yet unused journal given to her for just such a moment.
Journeying along a writing pathway helped her forge through the past and reminded her of what deep down she somehow always knew but was afraid to admit or embrace.
It didn’t matter that the scene outside her window had not changed for now, because the landscape of her heart was ready to be discovered, and not just by her.
