Whispering Silences

Wine a little

© Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

Listen, if you’re going to whine about things, you might as well do it with a good bottle of wine”, he said as he opened the door to an antique wine cellar.

You could smell the ageing cork as the labels indicated the years-old wine that adorned the shelves.

“You’re disappointed because you constantly expect too much. But worse, because you assume too much.

You say you prefer to know the truth and be disappointed than to wonder, but you do both and don’t avoid the heartbreak either way.

Get over yourself and your fictional scenarios. It’s the only way.

  5. A glass of red and a “Mother’s Little Helper” (Stones) can make everything all right, at least for a night.

    Or is the Eagles’ “Get Over It” I must endure?

    A good head scratcher.

  7. Looks like when you are lost in your imagination everything looks bleak. Have a glass of wine it might take the edge off. I like the conflict within the story.
