Five Sentence Fiction – Moon

Her love of travel could not be contained.

Her love of the new experiences it provided knew no bounds.

No sooner than she had returned from some flung place around the globe, that her bags were packed again for the next trip.

Call her a free spirit, a global nomad, a women of the world, call her what you would……she lived her life unaware of any label.

Her parents just shook their heads, sighed when a relative asked of her whereabouts, but did so as there face’s lit up with a huge grins, for they knew that within their family, she was the truly happy one.

This Five Sentence Fiction piece was inspired by one of my favourite songs’ Moon River’ from the movie ‘ Breakfast at Tiffany’s …in particular the following line-

” Two drifters off to see the world, There’s such alot of world to see’

    There is a big machine, chugging away in the subconscience of our society, which teaches us from childhood to get a job to pay bills, get a house, get a family, get a pet. There is a lot invested in this machine because for the most part it’s an effective way to keep and control the masses – but it doesn’t really teach us how to live! I don’t want to be too cynical but I think there is less economics and power in living, than there is in paying bills, having houses, families and pets. Horrah to those who really truely live. I salute you while I work for my salary to pay my bills 🙂
