Daily Post Thich Nhat Hanh

Leftovers Sandwich
Daily Prompt:  Today, publish a post based on unused material from a previous piece –a paragraph you nixed, a link you didn’t include, a photo you decided not to use. Let your leftovers shine!

This is a reject from Golden Key Daily Prompt:  You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?

2014 11 21_4890I’m walking through the supermarket.  I just want some coffee creamer.  The dog is waiting for me in the car.  I take a quick sidetrack through the fruits searching as I always do, and almost always disappointed when there are no peaches.  I feel an old asian man behind me brush against me.  He’s just an old guy, harmless-looking, walking around looking at all of the shelves smiling, probably marvelling at how opulent America is.  Later that day, when I’m changing clothes to do my yoga, I discover in my coat pocket a red envelope with Chinese writing on the outside.  Inside is a key and a small sliver of paper.  The paper is shaped like a fortune cookie paper.  On the paper is one word.  “Breathe.”

This post and picture are lovingly dedicated to Thich Nhat Hanh.
