Freewrite/Character 6/30/09

Life moved around her with gentle indifference, butting against her shoulders and legs on occasion. It never disturbed her, she never disturbed it. Neither invisible nor visible, she was a polite little shadow that plenty of people liked and a few people knew.

Her husband loved her. Her children loved her. But they had their own lives and were the quickly running streams around her silent rock.

She was content this way, the shadow. Content until she became famous, and marked for death, and everything that she knew went on its head.

  1. Hmmm…. and who is this person may I ask? She sounds achingly familiar.

    No one specific really. I like her though. She is very gentle, very content, neither particularly happy or depressed. I don’t think there are very many people like this, although some of the older Christian ladies I used to know might have influenced this.

    (She is actually pretty much my polar opposite, and the opposite of most of my friends.)
