How Big is YOUR Fish?

by Carole Brown

“My Fish was this big. Honest!”

If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead,
either write something worth reading or do things worth writing.
Benjamin Franklin
What kind of mundane life do you live?
One that flows along with no huge rocks to steer around?
One that avoids any shallows where your boat may get stuck?
Or the rapids where’s there’s a danger around every bend?
Or do you seek every day to find another reason to explore the excitement of living?
Do you gather good and bad things in your life
and those around you as fodder for your writing?
Is life too tame for you?
Do you run toward new adventures with arms wide open?
How big is YOUR fish?
Are all your aims and actions geared toward
what you believe is the right direction–for you?
Can you honestly say you’re doing things worth writing about?
