Tell a story in 160 Characters
Many of us like to roam over seas fringed in foam to places read of in a tome or to ancient ruins at Rome for the great Cathedral's dome only to long for home.
I have been looking for a Meme to do on Tuesdays. Not being able to find one I like, I made one up. I call it "Tales on Tuesday."
The idea is to tell a short, short (500 words or less) story based on the week's theme. To provide us inspiration, each theme will be the title of a TV show.
Your story does not have to have anything in common with the TV show.
If you want to play, the theme for Tuesday, March 23, 2010, will be "Lost In Space."
The theme for Tuesday, March 30, 2010, will be "Dark Shadows."
If you would like to suggest a theme, mention it when you comment.

Nice shadow Nessa. Where are the birds? LOL Or do they go in in pecking order? LOL Have a good Sunday :) Ooops forgot to mention what a great 160 that is. Well done. And there is no place like home :)ReplyDelete
Loved the shadow! I also enjoyed your rhyming 160.ReplyDelete
I agree, nice shadow. I like the idea of Tales on Tuesday. I will probably start in after April because in April I will be doing clinicals 6-2 on Tuesday and have to do the same on Wednesday. I have a lot of paperwork and have to try and go to bed early. Not my preferred pattern at all, I must say.ReplyDelete
nice 160...there is just something that brings us back to desiring home...ReplyDelete
I can't wait to read what you write!ReplyDelete
Thom: The birds are out shopping for nesting material.ReplyDelete
Quilly: The bright sunshine creates nice strong shadows.
Cheesemeister: Sounds very grueling. I am not normally a morning person myself although I get up at 5am everyday. I would much rather being heading for bed at that time.
Brian: even when we try so hard to get away.
Realliveman: I hope it meets expectations.
so often the shadow is even more beautiful than the objectReplyDelete
this is one of those times
Marvelous shadow shot, Nessa! Love the bird house and love it's shadow even more! Hope you're having a great weekend! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
admire that you have so many talents and engage in so many memes...
I did my 3rd Sunday 160 this week, or today.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the fun post and cool feedabck on others' work...
great shot nessa... very dramatic =)ReplyDelete
I do love shadow shots. Have you ever read George MacDonald's fairtales? He has a good one about the life of shadows. My favorite is Day Boy and Night Girl, although I might be off on that title.ReplyDelete
Excellent 160, I really like how you take us to so many places only to go home. Such wise words.
My SUPERHERO SUNDAY my Sunday 160 and Microfiction Monday for your perusal
Have a BLESSED SUNDAY and a FRUITFUL WEEK AHEAD!
The Sunday 160 Shadow Challenge. You are over the top on this one. In a good way. Thanks for playing and enjoy your Sunday.ReplyDelete
I love the bird house picture! Amazing!ReplyDelete
Very cool photo - love the shadow of the butterfly. Good idea for a new meme too - using the names of TV shows to work off of - brilliant! :)ReplyDelete
Great shadows, Nessa. I wish I could write as well as you do!ReplyDelete
Ooo, I like it. It's all artsy.ReplyDelete
It's so true: we can't really appreciate home until we've left it for awhile. A wonderful 160!ReplyDelete
i love the shadow shot - the bird house, the textures of the background, the contrasting shadows... perfect!ReplyDelete
and there's so much truth in 160. nice touch with the rhyming :)
Thank-you everyone for visiting. My head cold is making it difficult to think clearly.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shadows and you got two for the price of one!ReplyDelete
The shadow takes on the quality of a drawing on the wall. I suppose because it's rendered in 2 dimensions then.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful shadow! It looks like the butterfly is standing on the house. Wonderful words, too.ReplyDelete
Love the 'drama' of the shadow shot in your post!!!ReplyDelete
Love the photos!ReplyDelete
