FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER- 2017 WEEK #17

Mitch had spent the last two years following where the road led. He had taken a trip to Cozumel for spring break one year and never went back. Some guys he met invited him to join their trip to Arica Chile to surf. He tagged along. The surfing had been stellar. When the surfing group returned home, he headed to Machu Picchu before finding another surfing adventure. When he wasn’t on the beach he picked up work to pay his expenses. Mitch found odd jobs working at surf shops, coffee bars, restaurants and night clubs. As the summer surf waned, he found an opportunity to help crew a yacht to Monte Carlo. In Europe, he learned to ski in the Swiss Alps and wandered through great cities and ancient ruins.

For the last week, Mitch surfed the waves at Kolibithra beach by day and slept on the sand each night. He lay on his back and studied the stars as they traveled across the heavens. They knew where they belonged, and where their paths would take them was certain. Mitch wondered where he belonged. One evening when the sea was calm his thoughts flew west. He knew where he belonged.
