Every second is a gift – A Flash Fiction

Stars in the Tarantula Nebula (NASA, Hubble, Aura, 04/01/99)
Every second is a little gift. Each moment, a position in spacetime. It’s something precious. That moment at the zoo when your child first recognizes a panda from a picture book. The playful geeksquee when you slap a fez on your head and declare it cool. Walking under the cherry trees at the arboretum with your lover. Transform boring moments into an unexpected time to meditate and reflect. Pause to really feel the anticipation of something coming up later this week.Reality is a vast chaotic mess of experiences.Enjoy it.Because someday, Father’s coming back to clean it up.Based around Laurence Simon’s weekly challenge for the 100 word-stories podcast.
