Q is for Quiet & Quest

qis for QUIET and QUEST.  QUIETLY she crept down the worn path strewn with the remnants of her past.  A doll in a wrinkled gray coated blue and pink dress stared up at her.  She jumped for that was her doll.

A tear rolled down her cheek as  the memory of that birthday party flashed before her eyes.  Pink ribbons, and white balloons graced the corners of the dining room where her parents stood at the side of the table smiling.  “Here (insert name girl name).  Happy Birthday!”

Torn and dirty,  with a muddy face, it wasn’t as pretty as she remembered.   She knelt down and hugged it to her chest as the tears continued to roll down her cheeks.  She clung to that memory for that was the last time that she saw her parents….

OK ! Now that was a fork in the road!  I started out with the word QUIET, and then the image of a girl and a lost childhood  QUIETLY slipped into my mind.  I started thinking what could start a QUEST?  A memory?  YEAH!  Go with it and see where it flows!

But honestly it does work; for memories are QUIET for the most part and all QUESTS have to start somewhere.   So where will the QUIET of the QUEST lead to?  Should I venture down that fork of my imagination?  Sure! for who knows where it will end up?  What QUEST  will I follow and who is the girl in the story?   QUIETLY I follow the girl down the path…
