Life Story

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

The picture is of the place where the high point of my life happened. I was eleven. It was a ball game. As far as I’m concerned, that’s the story of my life, right there.

My therapist says no. The story of my life has a beginning, a middle, and the end, which is whenever I’m thinking about my life story.

My birth and youth, with some parental backstory, that’s the beginning. School and marriage and kids and work, that’s the middle, up till now, which is the end. All I can say is, some story.

  1. That must have been some ball game to trump marriage, kids, and everything else that happens in one’s life.

  2. Those little youthful victories mean so much, they are the moments we remember. Loved this.

  3. How sad that the highest point in life comes at age 11, when you still have decades of life to enjoy. So sad.
