Winding Road (SIGNS: #AtoZChallenge)


Winding RoadDave wanted to be a scientist: his first memory of wanting to be anything. He finagled his parents into getting all the science toys the local toy store carried. He made volcanoes, looked at bugs with a magnifying glass, put things on slides under his microscope. He mixed things together and took things apart.

Letting that go after the last disastrous school science fair, he tried on so many different ideas…all the time his father pushing him to work on his math, become a CPA.

Dave grew up. Had jobs. His life mixed things up. He put it all together.


For the April 2014 A to Z Blog Challenge, you will find a story a day (except Sundays) from me. A to Z: Staring with A on Tuesday, April 1st and ending with Z on Wednesday, April 30th.

Signs is my theme for this year’s outing. Road signs, building signs, warning signs…Signs alert us to a multitude of messages. My plan is to use the alphabet through Signage, but not to stick to what the sign was originally intended to convey. So, the genre of story writing, and styles, of the posts will vary as my mood and interpretation sees fit. Possibly a poem or two. We’ll see.

I’m also trying something more of a challenge: each post will be a Drabble. A Drabble is 100 Words Exactly.

Hope you enjoy the stories.

  1. I like the parallels between the science experiment and his life…everything being pulled apart and mixed up. We are all an experiment aren’t we…always interesting to see how we put it all together again. 🙂


  2. Life seldom follows a straight line; sometimes I wish that it did, but then I think about all of the things that have happened (bad and good) and realize that they all make me who I am today. Sometimes the winding road gives us unexpected perspectives. 🙂 Creative post as usual.
