Trifextra’s weekend challenge asks for exactly 33 words inspired by the following quote:

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” ― Paulo CoelhoAlchemist

Everyone of us is in need of a good dream – but we should always assure that whatever it is we’re reaching for in our dream isn’t in danger of stealing from someone else’s.


There I sat, transfixed, perspiration beads descending my clammy body.

No longer could I deny the prospect that dreams really do come true.

I simply hadn’t considered the nightmarish form verity often takes.

    • I think I should hire you as a marketing agent, Joe – as I wasn’t sure of whom you were speaking, it was so wonderfully nice! (do you think everyone got the pollyanna picture joke?!)

  1. To have a balanced perspective is so very important & love the way you have brought that to the fore dear Jody & that photo-omg!Too good!

    Excited to see you featured with an intro from Joe-am going to read it in another 15-20 minutes-as soon as I finish reading & commenting on the submissions till now:-)
