Slice of Life — Origins

Thanks to Chandra for the inspiration… Let’s see how it goes!

I am from the flat part of a city cut in half by the Blue Danube. I am from cobblestone streets and bullet-riddled apartment buildings where the walls of the ghetto once stood.I am from hiding places, from luck, from the right-place-at-the-right-time chances.

Ok, so I started to work on this a few hours ago and I’ve been thinking about this post all day. But then my hubby came down with a stomach bug and I was on solo baby duty all evening. Now I am exhausted and don’t really care where I came from, as long as I can get some sleep.

I hate it when life gets in the way of art. Will try again tomorrow…

  1. Love George Eliot’s poem “Where I’m From.” I’ve used it for my own writing, too! I also tried it with high school students and they were so proud of their own results 🙂

  2. I love what you’ve done with this, especially the line, “I am from hiding places, from luck, from the right-place-at-the-right-time chances.”
