Thursday photo prompt – Green#writephoto



I grew up in the Valley of the Amazons surrounded by strong, beautiful and wise women.  I learned to be fleet of foot, strong of arm and to make wise choices.  I loved the women who raised me and my childhood was happy but there was always a dark cloud that loomed in the background.  The women told me the day would come when I would need to leave the security of the Valley and follow the River of Life to the Tunnels of Choice.  I would need to choose to take either the Tunnel of Self Reliance & Loneliness or the Tunnel of Love & Dependence.

So here I stand this day at the mouth of the tunnels ready to make this choice.  Good thing I brought this pick along with me.  Because all the days of my life I will chip away at the wall that separates my choices.

This is written in response to Sue Vincent’s prompt and for all the daughters of Amazons who continue to chip away at the wall.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.
