Saturday Centus wk 64 23 July - Before I die I want to,

Jenny Matlock

          Oh Miss Jenny from "Off on my tangent"...really and truly is off on her very own sweet tangent.....and dished us a somewhat bittersweet prompt I must say....Note to: Judie (another Saturday Centus blogger) be happy you are off on other adventures and will miss this week's Centus of using only 15 words or less....and as usual Jenny gives us the six words "before I die I want to," free... Hooray we have 21 words to use! 

As an added feature Miss Jenny has been kind enough to let us include with this week's prompt a photo if we desire to!  Thanks, Miss Jenny......



My Saturday Centus is:

Honestly, before I die I want to, crack my skeptical shell, increase my sense of possibility and achieve my wish list.


So instead of a small itsy bitsy building (like Miss Jenny gave us) I offer a Queen's idea of place.....and a lovely garden as well.....
If you feel about 15 or 21 words deep inside just urging to be in print, then just visit Saturday Centus, or just see what everyone else came up with!  Thanks for joining me again this week, have a great weekend and a better week ahead!

Cracking a skeptical shell might be the toughest thing on that list. Great 21 worder.

"Crack my skeptical shell" - I also love this wording. Great use of our measly 21!

Viki said...

I'm with you on this one. Loved the phrasing on this.

Sue said...

Sounds like a good plan. I can almost hear the shell cracking!

=)

Christine said...

Get cracking then.

I think we all could do with a little cracking!

Noexcuses

Anna said...

That's the spirit! Think BIG! Use unusual words! Dare to do something, that others say is impossible!

I'm with you!

BTW thanks for your kind words and hopes for me. I am amazed and grateful that I have a son and a daughter and am not taking anything for granted.

My son is nine years old, my daughter is seven. I hope that I will live to see them become adults. I don't want to put pressure on them that they have to have a family.

Best wishes,
Anna

'crack my skeptical shell'...that line just kind of rolls off the tongue...it has a nice sound. it MIGHT be easier said than done...but if it's a 'before i die' goal...better get cracking! :)

(thanks for your kind words...of understanding, comfort & support...that you left...i appreciate it!)

Deborah said...

I'm sure you will too! :o)

5thsister said...

Whoo hoo! Here's to achieving all that and then some! Wonderful!

Karen, Just come on over to my house. I really need to crack something and better your shell than someone's skull! I like the way you wrote this down.

Namaste..........cj

What's on your wish list? For me, I want to be awake!

I think I need to keep these words in mind when I attempt Pikes Peak again next month...

Thanks for the inspiration!

Alan Burnett said...

"Before I die I would rather like to discover the secrets of perpetual life (in a physical not a spiritual sense)" That's a philosophical one for you.

Nonna Beach said...

That was awesome and and cleverly done. You would be great with formulating wishes if you had Aladdin's lamp !

Dan O'Neil said...

As an obsessive positive thinker... I have to ask...

So you want to crack your skeptical shell... that's all well and good, but it focuses on what you don't want. What is it you DO want?

It's like saying you don't want to be shy anymore... the focus of a goal on what you don't want, brings more of what you don't want and keeps reminding you that you have a problem!

Rek said...

I second the wish....great use of the prompt..loved the picture too.

The Woodswoman said...

Well, o.k. then, here's to slipping out there without protection....

Jenny said...

Maybe that shell has to come off a little bit at a time. Maybe the cracking is just in the living...every day and being wonderful you.

I really enjoyed what you shared here.

This weeks reading feels so honest to me. We are becoming such a supportive little community.

It makes me smile!
