Friday Fictioneer challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
MaryLou sat in the canoe doing the Zen thing and visualizing herself out on the lake: calm, strong, and sure of her destination. Back in the cabin, her friends were sleeping off the previous night’s alcoholic indulgences. She wondered why they had come if they had no intentions of ever going outdoors.
She looked at the stone trail marker. It wasn’t telling her which way to go, only that she had a choice. A decision point. How many had she disregarded in her life?
Easing herself into the bottom of the canoe, MaryLou stretched out, deciding to take a nap.
