Daily Post Prompt: Ghost
It was a late Saturday morning. I didn’t have anywhere to be, so I was sleeping in. The sun was already shining bright in the room, but I figured I could sleep a little more. I felt Mercy sit down on the edge of the bed. I felt her stroke my hair. The room was so quiet, I could even hear my hair move as she played with it. I slowly opened my eyes with a smile. No one was there. I looked around the room. There wasn’t even a kitty in sight. Wow, I must be still dreaming. Oh, well.
I fell back asleep. It happened again. What the…? I must be still dreaming.
I shook it off and closed my eyes again, but didn’t drift off this time. I didn’t want to get up yet. My hair gets stroked again.
I shot out of the bed and was down the stairs and in the living room in 3 seconds flat.
Mercy looks at me and says, “You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”
“I didn’t SEE one…”
I have often said that I am the luckiest woman in the world. I’m not lucky because of the good things that happen to me, but because of the REALLY bad things that don’t happen to me. I don’t know why I am still alive. That Wednesday should have been my last day…
As I am in my first year of blogging, I find the statistics of my site amazing. I am almost addicted to the Stats page. I find myself clicking on it any chance that I get.
- How many people have visited today, this week, this month, etc?
- Where are people from?
- How many followers do I have?
- How many comments did I get?
- Are they comments or pingbacks? It took me a long time t understand and appreciate pingbacks.
I love looking at the bar graph and changing the time line being shown. I love seeing the world map fill with color. When will I get some color in South America, Eastern Europe, or more of Africa?
It seems like a little game to me. But I forget that not everyone speaks English. There are countries where people do not have the same rights regarding the internet.
Would I be interesting at all to someone who has to translate my page? Would I make any sense translated?
I love the thoughts that pop into my head as I look at these stats. I hope that it will inspire my writing and dreaming.
It makes me wonder, what someone thinks about my blog living in Nepal, Croatia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Australia, Qatar,…the list keeps growing.
So give me a thrill…Where do you live?
