V is for Value

Value is placed on everything from money to people. It is sad that the items under valued the most are usually the ones with the most value. The items in question do not have to cost a dime to be more valuable than anything else, in fact they do not even have to be tangible. 

Friendship, caring and trust are all valuable assets. Unfortunately they are taken for granted more often then anyone would care to admit. Taking those that would do anything for you without question for granted can cause you to lose them. Can you afford to lose them? It is likely that you cannot. The number of people that truly care can sometimes be slim meaning that you should value those that are genuine in their affections for you.

The amount of people that would take advantage of you is higher than you might care to admit but sadly enough it is true. Value is more than what you can buy or sell something for; it is what you end up with when you least expect to end up with anything at all. 

The true value is found beneath the surface when you peel away the layers to discover what is underneath.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.

“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
