55 - Destiny

“Yard Sale of Destiny,” the sign said. In need of ideas, she gave it a shot. At the stated address she found cardboard boxes of old sheets, VHS tapes, costume jewelry and paperback novels. Was this shabby detritus her destiny? Disturbed by the implications, she signed up for a yoga class on the way home.











About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

Ann, I am laughing at the synchronicity at play between our 55s. :)

I smiled at the VHS tapes. And the yoga class - she definitely needs to find her center :)

But the treasure IS there if you but just dig a little deeper. Of course, a little yoga never hurts...unless your me and overdo it ending up with a severe case of bursitis in the left hip requiring weeks and weeks of physical therapy and tears of pain and, oh well, where were we? Oh yes, treasure. It's there. Or so I've been told. :)

I like this....yard sale of destiny, the shabby detritus of a discarded life. Yoga would help.

One of my favorites thus far.

Isn't shabby detritus everyone's destiny, yoga or not?
