Story Challenge: Letter “T”

Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “T”? For example I’ve written about TRACKS (read below) and typewriters, Tacitus or Taiwan, T-shirts and tornados, Tunisia or Turkey, about terrorism and the Twin Towers, the Titanic and the East German car TRABI, about trains and tanks, Toronto and Thykydides, testosterone and translations, theology and tits, tractor rhythms and tango dancers, twitter and tumblr, trombones and trumpets etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “T”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “T”!!!

TRACKS

Year after year passes – and we leave a track like this swan too, metaphorically. What is the result? And what is the sum of our parents and other ancestors? What will be the résumé of our lives for our own kids and grandchildren? Which of your footprints, prints, actions, decisions should be mentioned, when you are dead and gone?

  3. Dear Frizz,
    This is a really lovely photograph, paired with a very poetic thought. I think it is an important question we need to ask ourselves again and again.

    Here is a short thought about the Titanic from my blog, called “The Titanic Connection.” http://naomibaltuck.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/the-titanic-connection/

  4. Quite a photo. Hoping this is not your swan song. Ha. That swan, that duck seems to have the sense not to look behind, not to worry about his tracks. It’s us humans that bother with such thoughts. Of course these thoughts are interesting to us humans. At least when our past deeds are not fowl.

  9. Tracks are irreversible, can’t go back, so I think the “trick” is, think before making the next step! That swan wisely looks forward …but we are human!
    Nice theme, Frizz! :-)

    Perhaps the wise swan is suggesting you measure your steps, so you will never need to look back :-)

    • you’ve written a wonderful train tribute!
      your words “the bright train light cutting through a still dark morning” gave me a flashback to a decade in my life, when I used a train very early in the morning to reach my job. the tracks followed a river. icy river in winter, foggy river mostly, in summer cormorants hunting fishes, canoes waiting on the shore for the next ride, once some cattle waited on the track for the train to say hello. the locomotive could not stop quickly enough …
