At the beginning. A little girl comes running.Subway is in the
distance.A couple of boys walk by as she sits drinking her peppermint
Baby looks around from its pushchair. The sky is dull and she
begins to wonder about life.
The weather is quite different from yesterday.The music in the
background gives her a sense of achievement in her life. She has found
the gumption to carry on.
It is summer coming on to Autumn. Schools are out. Many teenagers
are about. Many mis-haps between friends. Grandparents coming to their
aid sometimes when just off to bed.
Not long ago the families relative passed away. It affected all.
Times were hard wondering about the future. As she sits with her
peppermint tea, she begins to
wonder about the life that they had before
her son was born. It is still summer.
She will go home soon and find
the lovely cabbage waiting for her to place in the microwave to cook.
She came across a similar pack a few weeks ago. It was delicious. A
cabbage melody. Such a healthy meal. She had it also last night.She
wonders what she will have with it tonight. Last night, if she remembers
correctly, it was salmon. She went off all fish and dairy and meat for
at least 3 weeks; she thought she was doing the right thing, trouble is,
her oesophagus began to hurt again, she found it hard to swallow.
Although she was having the alternative of soya, that also felt greasy,
but obviously not enough. She has stayed off meat.
Briony went back on milk 2 days ago, and her ossie... didn't feel
so painful, so, again she had done the right thing. Sometimes, its not a
case of just losing weight which she does need to do, its about
considering the health problems you have.
That beat is nice, its peaceful, triumphant to the soul.
So her goal is to enjoy her writing again.
The beauty of the summer months have been great. Now Briony will
rest again in her soul, continuing her journey through life.
