Living Incommunicado

It is day 13 of the 28 day WWFC writing challenge.  My lucky number!  Today’s subject is “incommunicado.”

Had it been four weeks since she moved to Corolla? She had given away nearly everything she owned, save for items she held close to her heart.  Children’s art, pictures, jewelry and books were at the top of her “must save” list.

It was surprisingly easy to get rid of all the junk that held her down.  Furniture, knick-knacks and rarely worn clothing now sat at Goodwill.  The house was no longer a burden following a short sale, despite the significant financial loss.

Out went the smart phone, as well as the laptop and tablet.  She now relied on a land line and had given up her TV.

Closing the book, she raised her head and looked at the line of sand dunes.  Smiling, she realized that soon her mother would arrive, followed by her kids and their gear.

There was time for one more swim before everyone pulled in.  Grabbing her towel and sandals, she walked down the stairs and headed towards the beach.

Despite what acquaintances had warned, living incommunicado was far from a life of sacrifice.  On the contrary.  Her life had never been more full.
