Slippery.....

I have been reading the wonderful thoughts of those who post their Sunday Scribblings for a few weeks now. Two very good online friends participate regularly. I am jumping in, with a 10 minute freewrite.

The topic this week "slippery."

When I think of the word "Slippery" these are the first things that come to mind: emotions, life, finances, relationships, memory, strength, health, ice, water.... it is strange to me that ice and water, the literal definitions were the last to come to mind. It is also strange that as soon as I started thinking in the concrete the thoughts stopped.

A slippery life can feel like it is just slipping through your fingers and the more you try and grab it the less of a hold you have. Life should be slippery and smooth, silky and sensual. To often it feels more like a wrestling an oiled pig, not very enjoyable at all and too much energy for too little reward.

A slippery, smooth, silky, sensual life would be one that was fully in the moment, alive, moving forward and enjoyed to the maximum. Really good ice cream, sun rays peeking through the clouds, a great wine, wonderful sex, amazing chocolate, playing with a baby, beautiful clothes, big beautiful flowers, feeling the Peace of God, and lots and lots of laughter. It would be a rich life, fully lived within a greater Community. The Peace would slip right through your fingers and into someone elses, as more and more continues to slip your way.

My 10 minutes is up...

So well said! And the last line about peace slipping through your fingers into someone else's really hit home. Beautiful!

Welcome to Sunday Scribblings. I see there were quite a few new Scribblers this week. I hope you'll be back. Your timed writing was a good approach.

Beautifully written! My (dirty) mind went right to sex when I first read the prompt, but I decided to write about my second thought. Slippery people.
Glad you are doing Scribblings, or I wouldn't have found your interesting blog. :)
