Ligo Haibun Challenge: January 3, 2014

Winter is such a lovely time of the year to take an early evening’s walk.  The yellow city fog lights create a special golden quality to the air.  I love how the bridges and over passes are illuminated. The total effect is something magical…like out of a fairy story.

Walking with Stephen during this winter’s Christmas break was really something special.  We laughed a lot and created stories about the people who passed us on the street. Sometimes we inspired ourselves with a single word we caught from a conversation…like the time:


“Ok…A flash of light filled the night air blinding almost everyone..”
“Except for the Willow Mage, who’d been looking in the directions of the Black Knight!”
“Who are you, oh Black Knight, the mage asked in his most imperious voice…because intimately he was really afraid.”
“Brave Mage…your people has been enchanted by a special light which flickering whitely in a box has blinded everyone to life’s reality!”
And at this point Stephen pulled out a box of cough drops from his pocket and began to pretend he was doing an “infomercial”!

“That’s right ladies and gentlemen, take it from the Black Knight…just one drop of this magic elixir is all you’ll need and your cough will disappear in a flash!”

We laughed as we arrived at the pizzeria for dinner.

      • Georgia, Aww, I like that story even more, knowing your son went back to Uni after, I don’t know why. We played Scotland Yard. I am reminded how wily and smart my hubby is. 🙂 You have a great year, too! Cheers, Brenda
