Unfolding plans 181 – I am free inside my head.

I came across this the other day.  Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other I forget how.

The idea is to write a six-word story about what you think the future holds for you, and then expand on it in a post.

Now writing six words in a row that make sense is quite easy but making them into a story, well that is another matter.  I could not compete with Ernest Hemingway’s flash fiction ‘For sale: baby shoes, never worn.’  I thought I’d give it a go though.

I started with some pretty tame ones related to work:

To be trusted start by trusting.   I make a difference every day.  No decisions, help them solve it.

I then moved on to some that struck me as a little more intriguing:

From a caterpillar to a butterfly.  The pursuit of knowledge is thrilling.  Genetics has offered me eternal life.

There are definitely more stories in there.  In the end though I settled for:

I am free inside my head.

I am free to think what I want.  I am free to be who I want and I am free to go where I want.  It is heaven and hell, yin and yang, love and death.  It is filled with wondrous beauty, self-doubt, fear and loathing.  I hear voices.  I see pictures.  I forget things I should know and remember those I wish I hadn’t.  Inside my head only I can hear my screams.
