A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Writing Prompt #90 – Proverb – January 18, 2015

“Fruit Pickers Harvesting Under the Mango Tree,” by Fernando Amorsolo in 1939


“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

This idiom has always terrified me. I was reluctant even to have children just encase I would “turn” on becoming a parent into someone I did not recognize (into a monster). For others this idiom is reassuring as their caretakers are/were positive role models. I want you to explore the ways in which you are like your family (blood relations are unnecessary just choose the people who raised you and/or influenced you the most growing up). Try not to focus exclusively on the negative or exclusively on the positive, aim for a balanced perspective.


When you’ve finished writing your piece, TAG: Writing Challenge and Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie and ping back or write your post’s address in the comments.  Thanks! Bastet


About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)
