Story Challenge: Letter “R”

Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “R”? For example I’ve written about some RIVER memories (read below), about Russia or Rome, Robin Hood or Robinson Crusoe, about how to resist or how to retreat, how to roar and how to rest, about Rio de Janeiro or Rembrandt, about rainy days or rough racism, Route 66 and the Rolling Stones, James Rizzi or Renzo Piano, religion and rust, Condoleezza Rice or Rocky Raccoon, about revolvers and restaurants, riots and revolutions etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “R”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “R”!!!

River Story

Georgetown, Maine (an island community located in midcoast Maine near Bath): I do not have a photo of my life rescue action in the Ruhr river, Germany, but Barry Lubman kindly gave the permission to me, to feature his photo from a yellow house at the Kennebec River, near Bath (and the 5 islands restaurant) – click on the picture, to enter Barry Lubman’s flickr gallery.

  1. That’s an amazing story Frizz! I’m sure Mother Cow must be grateful to you! I remember your painting too of the picture. Here’s my entry..


    • your truck photo with cows on the Chennai to Bangalore Highway moves my heart … sometimes I feel deported like this by surrounding social conditions …

  7. And one more: “R” is for Reflection. After a long, hot summer September becomes a time for reflection.


  8. One of mine. “R” is for Racism.


    I do not always have the inspiration to write something, but R for Return came through loud and clear

  17. A nobel thing to save a helpless animal. I’m sure the mother cow was very happy to have her calf safe. Lovely story, Frizz.
    I have found something that will fit the challenge. The pix’s were for myself so they aren’t great but I wanted to add something here. Hope you enjoy,


  18. Here is my entry on railroad tracks.

  23. What a stunning photo! The colours, both soft and bold, are so pleasantly restful. The poor little calf, but what a happy ending!

  25. Lovely story, and the photo is wonderful. :)


  26. Hi Frizz,
    The photo is so striking, and it is a very beautiful story. I wonder if you have ever heard Bill Staines song called “River.” It is one of my favorites.
    I do have a short story called “Reflections” at this link:


  27. Hi Frizz, our Featured Photographer in GatheringBooks has chosen the theme: R is for Rivers, Oceans, and other Bodies of Water. Here is the link:

    I enjoyed your river story. Would have wanted to know what was going on in Mother Cow’s mind. :)
