P is for Punctuality

Written for:  One Woman's Quest II

"This week, I am challenging myself to consider the other side. Through creative writing or visualization, to imagine a dialogue with an opposing force. If I am so inspired, I may write from the perspective of other, putting ego-self into the third person.

The key is to allow your imagination free rein. Let the other speak. Don’t worry about whether it makes sense or fits with your ego-perception. Just go with the flow."

You finally made it last night.

Well you know how unorganized I am.  At least we
didn't miss anything.

Glad it wasn't a dinner invitation.  I have learned
not to cook anything until you arrive.

I'm always losing track of time, and personal objects
in the house.  Guess I'm just hopeless.

No, you are not hopeless.  The point is with all
the therapy you've had, you could never reach
the root of this behavior.

Maybe in another ten years.

(Both laughing)

    Good point. Some issues are never resolved.
