BECKY said...

Hey G-Man, or is it Mr. Knowitall? Whichever...I really liked your story!

John's comments said...

Nice little SF poignant story. Laughed at your comment when you dropped by. And what, you don't read theoretical quantum particle physics? As far as I understand, the problem is that if the universe was a can of baked beans then picking it up ( the can,not the universe) suggests that only one bean in the can. But when you open it, its full, So a Higgs bosin is the way of trying to explain this difference. Simple really. But that's why you need my metaphor machine microfiction. Oh, if you want a proper explanation one is here.

MorningAJ said...

That implies that even though she's immortal she'll still have to grow old. Not nice!
Excellent take on the picture and a very good read.

izzy said...

Yup the Moon would be a good place for star gazing, but a tad chilly
against the skin.... Thanks!

Mona said...

once lost , gone forever dear!

was it given to you? Then it must have been taken away!

Do something to 'earn' it back !

hey g-man! got to catch up on your 55, as well as your dreamy mfmonday offering :) so, what's up with the 'gotta do whatever it takes to heal' ending of your coffee tribute???? what's going on wit' you, galen?

Peggy said...

Mr G;

You are really good at this. Took to this like a duck to water.
Beautiful take on the picture of the week. Lost youth.
Have a great day.

Poor Galen, I hate the thought of you there alone...but I know it won't be that way for long!

Monkey Man said...

Galen? A seriously poetic post? I am floored. nicely done. If you can do 140, can you do 160? My Sunday 160 was patterned after your 55 and I even credit and link you in my original post.

Mona said...

GALEN! OUR BUF PASSED AWAY! I CAN"T BELIEVE ITS TRUE!

Mama Badger said...

No worries. You'll hit middle age, have a crisis and buy an even bigger, shinier star. And people will talk behind their hands about it...

Jessie said...

well said Mr. G!

smiles,

Nice one G~Man, This was good. Funny it doesn't look like Alice Kramden though.

Pat said...

Ohhh, a poignant mourning of lost youth, a time when we all thought we were immortal.

Good one.

hope said...

You took an apparently sad picture [according to the majority today] and turned it into a thinking moment. Interesting. :)

lime said...

you'll always be a star, g-man!

Michael G-G said...

At least she wasn't swinging on a star...

Great job, G-Man. Evocative.

Have a great week.

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh wow Galen - that's fantastic. Waiting for an improbable return, that's the pits -- but so poignant and somehow heroic, too.

I love it!
