Three Line Tales: Sandboarding and Secrets.

Thank you to Sonya of 100 Words or Less for hosting 3 Line Tales each week based on a photo prompt.

1. I would like to sandboard  down this deep sand hill, it. reminds of snowboarding but better because it’s not freezing cold outside and you don’t have to dress in winter gear; if you fell I believe it wouldn’t be as tough, sand is more giving then snow, but truthfully; I’m terrible at snowboarding or sandboarding, I should’ve learned when I was a little girl and had less distance to fall to the ground.


2. The shadow makes me think all the things we hide, of secrets we keep for each other, some which tear us to pieces inside, so should we keep secrets? It’s a valid question, but more so we need to be careful who we gift with what information, especially at first; I believe in honesty, but I know they’re some truths which are so awful, they should never see the light of day.

3. To live in the light, I think it’s a wonderful saying and I want to be forth right and not have to hide my true self from others; I like to say things how they are and not have to keep secrets (as I’ve said); but there are days the shadow wins and hiding secrets is the expected course of action; we need to have people we can trust with our secrets, and hope they trust their secrets to us, but I’m not always sure who you can trust with what types of secret because gossip is all too prevalent with people; secrets always bring confusion and bitterness is often a result.

  1. You’ve answered the question quite rightly! Secrets do result in bitterness! And as the saying goes…”One who guards his secrets has complete control over his affairs.”… Contemplative three lines! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. Yeah, I’d love to go sand-boarding there, too! And I agree, it’s difficult to know who you can trust sometimes – I used to be a lot more open but it may have come back to bite me one time to often… Great take on the prompt 🙂

  3. I love the wit of the first part and the truth of the second and third parts. I particularly like this: “I believe in honesty, but I know they’re some truths which are so awful, they should never see the light of day.”

    So true, Mandi!

    1. Thanks Rosema. I’m glad you liked the lines. Those lines in particular are just being honest. No one wants to keep secrets but I’m not sure that’s always possible. Everyone has a bit of darkness in their past, they don’t want to tell everyone.
