You Are Not Alone – Friday Fictioneers

How to go from nuthin’ to somethin’ in a few minutes.  This here photo by Sarah Potter had me going in so many directions, I had me some trouble choosin’ one.  So I played my turn at WWF with DK (for once, I’m ahead), came back here and wouldn’t ya know? It just happened.  I tells ya, ya gotta try this here challenge. Sure do get your ‘magination going sometimes. Rochelle is the bestest hostess with the mostest.  G’head, click on the frog below to play along.

Th’other day, Sally was telling me that she feels a presence. She’s convinced it’s her grandma, looking out for her.  I think it’s a whole lotta hogwash but then, I never did believe in all that spirit stuff anyhow. But hey, if it works for her and she’s happy with having some kinda shadow following her around? Then, who am I to talk, right? To each his own, I say. Whatever works, yanno? I ain’t here to judge no one on their beliefs. If it gives them comfort, that’s cool.

Sure do wish I felt like I had one, though.

  1. Dear Dale,

    I love the voice in this one. And that ethereal pink frog is something, too. I wonder if that’s what my guardian angel looks like. I think mine must look like a purple mermaid. 😉

    Shalom and lotsa attentive and protective hugs,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      So glad you do. And I was pretty pleased to find that one! Hmmm. I should think she’d be more of the mermaid genre.

      Shalom and Lotsa love,



  2. I hear ya … and I hear her, and I think that indeed those ‘presences’ are sometimes as real as we can sense them to be. And, for the most part, in my experience at least, there was more love than angst in these ‘visitations’ (whatever they might be, a figment of one’s imagination or a story of one’s heart or extra-perception of realms beyond the norm). Here’s to connection, and to knowing that love never dies. Not really. Sending hugs … N.

  3. We believe what we believe about ethereal presence or otherwise. About a week before Spunk came home, a friend called with a computer problem. I was out on the deck talking to her, because I get better reception outside. I saw something moving in the vinca. I thought it was a squirrel or rabbit. I walked over to investigate, and it was a box turtle that had been in the middle of the road where he would have been squashed by the next car to come by, so I pulled him off the road, took him home and turned him loose on the property. I had not seen that turtle for over a year. I took it as a sign the turtles was telling me Spunk would come home.

  4. I wonder are guardian angels allowed time off. What happens when someone does something really bad. Will their guardian angle get into trouble. So many questions you have stirred up in my brain. 🙂

  5. Q

    Me too! I know it may come off as spooky or morbid to some, but I find it to be a comforting prospect. Because it would be some evidence of the fact that we ain’t alone, and that there is more to all of this than the here and now. I can’t really believe that it’s as set in stone as some would have us believe. I feel as if there is something else, another side. A different place.

    You pegged it. That slightly off, almost spooky and yet somewhat comforting prospect.

  6. Great voice, Dale, I agree with Susan. I am struggling to read a book I discovered called “Their Eyes Were Watching God”, hard going because of all the pronunciation and different spellings but had a breakthrough with it last night so I’m getting there. But your story is much more accessible – no problems with yours and it left me with the feeling that the storyteller has a watchful presence but just hasn’t realised yet.

    • Thank you, Jilly. I didn’t make overly “drawly” 😉 Wanted it as accessible as possible!
      Yeah, I would think that one would be more difficult (almost worth watching the movie first in this case – which I choose to do now).
      I like to think that is the case, too. 🙂


  7. I don’t believe in ghosts, but I do believe in the Supernatural. As you say, to each his own. I find great comfort in the presence of God in my life. Someone else may feel comfort from the ghost of Great Aunt Matilda 🙂

  8. If it brings comfort, who are we to judge. My granny said my grandad visited her, especially right after his death. Who knows? Maybe we will someday. Nice, thought-provoking story, Dale! I enjoyed the accent too. Have a nice weekend!

  9. She’s right not to judge someone’s beliefs, whatever makes them happy. Plus if you don’t judge you can choose to believe in whatever you want and that just maybe someone who looks over you when you feel the need.
