Facing Reality

Daily Prompt: Life Line.
You’re on a long flight, and a palm reader sitting next to you insists she reads your palm. You hesitate, but agree. What does she tell you?

Are you ready …
to face the reality?
Yes I am.
Well …

first ….
you will meet
some very interesting
people of the world
it’s what you
like most isn’t it
*said with a 😉 *
you will go on being
that strong
you’ve always been
until the end

then ….
you will be told
by your doctor
you have cancer

finally ….
you will decide
to make that trip
to New Zealand
as you always
dreamt about
but …
while over the ocean
the flight will
blow up

-Thanks for your time, I said.
Now I will go out for my daily walk-about with my Canon
to face people and reality.

Ps. It’s not true but it could be.

I took the flight. Like I so often do. To my favorite city in Europe. Budapest in Hungary. The center of all kind of arts. The city of many festivals. Now it is Christmas market. Everybody is out and I love mingling around with my Canon. All kinds of handicraft. All kinds of Hungarian food – made out in the air. Chimney cakes baked for never ending queues. All kinds of languages spoken. Some people or many actually like the mulled wine but I don’t. But I wouldn’t say no to an Unicum.
