Paradox

Six Sentence Story word prompt – Connection

It has always been easy for Sage to make connections with strangers. She feels they are all related somehow in the vast Cosmo. Her heart is an open door for sharing of stories.

There is no surprise to see Sage giving an inspiring speech in a high society fund raising ball, sharing a coffee and cigarette with a homeless sister on a street corner, or taking her elderly neighbour to her Aqua therapy every Monday afternoon.

But in her household, she was given the cold shoulder for her career success by the one should have supported her, criticised for her strict discipline by her children, and misunderstood her tireless giving for personal ambition.

Sage sheds tears in her prayer room for the unity she so striving for but doesn’t seem to be any closer in her own backyard.

  1. Sage is lucky. Lucky to have that sense of connectedness. With connectedness comes kindness and generosity and selflessness. Doing because you want to, without expectation of return but that of a smile or a hug, a handshake or kind word. It is a sad thing when
    kindness and generosity are suspect for having an ulterior motive.
    Families don’t always readily understand the “whys” of our behavior unless they truly know and understand our nature.
