Bruce and Scarlet

creativity, My Sketch Book, writing


Bruce was sitting in his office.

He was thinking about the meaning – or lack of – in his life.

All the sacrifices he had made for something bigger than himself…

Does he really want to be sitting here right now?

Where would he rather be?



Scarlet was out for a walk in the woods. She was thinking about her life and its meaning – or lack of.

Her life was simple. She ate simply, dressed simply, spoke simply.

But her head was full of stories.

She can go where ever she wants, but she always ends up going to the same place.

Where would you like to be right now?

  1. I’m enjoying these little character studies of yours and the vignettes you create for them. Both Bruce and Scarlet are reflecting on important aspects of life. I think it’s important to reevaluate our life’s direction and purpose from time to time. Interestingly, it was a series of thoughts just like Bruce’s that led to my husband suggesting we explore the possibility of emigrating. We never know where life might take us when we ask ourselves these questions.
