The Runaway

PHOTO PROMPT -© Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

How can a person fit a life into a U Haul trailer? I couldn’t take everything. I had to leave quickly or I might lose my nerve. It was like when we had to evacuate that night the wild fires came. Deciding what was essential to take with us. I ended up taking some books, a few clothes, and mementos from my kids. My daughter’s baby shoes, a valentine card from my son when he was little, and some of their photos. A friend is letting me stay at her house on the rocky Monterey shore.

This is my contribution to Friday Fictioneers hosted by the gracious Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

    They’ve remember to take things which can’t be replaced – the mementos – rather than a pile of iPhones and the like. That’s a good start and will make them feel more at home wherever they end up.
