Here is your FWF prompt…

 

Let’s leap into the future with a time & place scenario. 

 

The year: 2063

 

The place: An underground bunker

 

What’s going on?

This is a hard one for me. I deal with so much in 2013 I don’t think about 2063. It is scary to say out loud that I won’t be alive. I will have lived a good life and in that year I will be sitting by God looking down at who knows what.

I would be 109 years old if I would live that long. Of course God would need me very badly here on earth for me to still be here. Can you imagine what I would look like at 109 years old?wrinkles

Would there be home-made foods like we or some of us still fix today or would there be food pills that all we need to do is drink water.Vitamins

Would there be peace in the world or would there big bigger wars than we can even imagine?wars

What kind of cars would we be driving? Would they look similar to what we know now? Or would they not even be recognized?carhouse

Will all of us still be living here on our planet? Or will families be walking on the moon?moon

I guess it doesn’t matter, since I won’t be here to live it.

Although I do wish my grandchildren the best of luck. They are young enough now that they most likely will adapt very well.

They will look back at people like me and wonder why we got so excited over a microwave.microwave Or how about when they make fun of me because I own the latest version of a cell phone?cell phone Well what ever the case, at least I am still not using two paper cups and a piece of kite string for a phone.

I can taste and season my own foods. I know my way around and don’t have to worry about falling into any moon puddles or craters. I know how to use my simple cell phone and I can program my own ring tones and pick my own wallpaper. My car is still made in the United States of America, and I can still choose which gas station and what kind of gas I choose to use.

As far as wars go, I have lived all these years with war going on and off. I am sure God has the perfect answer in how to end this useless fighting. So for this I will just sit by God and watch him work his miracles.

And last but not least, I sort of like the skin I wear right now. I don’t think I want to see me looking like my next door neighbor’s dog. So I will take what I have and be content, for I am pretty sure that some things will be exciting in the future, but I am certain that I would be lost and realize that there is no place like home.               red slippers http://youtu.be/4IErqIMLwtQ

  2. Adored reading this one – your humour is evident. When I saw the date I panicked thinking it would be beyond me. Then I realised there are 2 special women in my life my Grandma (nearly 90) and her sister, my great Aunt (94) – so with a sprinkling of luck and assistance from whatever the 21st Century has to offer us I will be around to see 2063, I wonder if I will remember having to write about it!
    That’s another reason I thought it was a brave and evocative piece – because although people do make it past 100 I am not sure how much they remember.

    I also saw the TV documentary that had the car house on it! Amazing!
    And lastly, I just love all the ideas you have touched on and the focus on things changing!

    • thanks so much my friend for this awesome comment. I have never seen the show with that car on it but wished I could. it is hard for me to think of a time when I will definitely no longer be here. Just doesn’t seem possible

      • You’re welcome I was worried that I was going to be gone by 2063 maybe I will… you may be able to find the House show online – it was somewhere in Europe. The car headlamps are awesome windows on the inside.

  3. Just love it …. 109 years old, to be honest I don’t want to become that old and mostly because I will be so upset what the world has come to. I’m sure my 3 meals per day will either be pills or fluid. But if I do I will wear my red suede high heels every day *smile – this is a brilliant side of you.

    • you will go to your grave with those red suede shoes on. I am sure of it. I also don’t want to see how much worse this world can be. It is bad enough. I will watch for you when we both die. I will look for the red shoes~~~

      • Terry, we have seen nothing yet – so long as we carry on as we .. do is the poor world getting a rough journey in more than one way. I hope the next generations listens carefully. I think you should buy a pair too …

  4. Fascinating writing but, if I could interject something Terry dear, my heart tells me that much you’ve written is already happening and has occurred and God has had his mysterious ways to save his people and, I highly doubt that He won’t already be here in less than 5 years. You are very creative writer dear!

    • thank you for the nice compliment. I don’t want to see what else the world can discover. I don’t want to see more families separated or more vicious wars. I am glad I won’t be around then. God will come again and the world will be made clean once again. big hugs my friend

  5. Terry, wow this does make you think about the changes we have all experienced exponentially in our lives and what might come next. But you are right we will be here we will be in the arms of our loving Father! As CS Lewis said, ‘There are far better things ahead than those we leave behind.’

  6. I remember when I was little, how the year 2000 seemed so far away and how I just knew there would be flying cars and moving sidewalks etc… I love your imagination and how you made me once again ponder the future.
    As for growing old…now that, i do not want to think about lol

    • I can remember thinking that about the year 2000 also. I can also remember thinking how old my parents were but now, I am so close to being old it makes me a little afraid or nervous. I have not done all I wish to do yet. I want to live until I require help to breathe or walk or eat. When that time comes just throw my butt in a nursing home. Don’t come see me; instead remember the good times. Thanks kellie for a nice comment you left me

      • It’s weird for me. On one hand I don’t wana get old, but then I sure am not looking forward to kicking the bucket either. And we have no choice in either. We will do one or the other or both, no way around it.

      • a lot of it is in our mindset. how are we going to deal with getting older when our wrinkles around our eyes start, when joints begin to ache, when everything that once stood is now drooping. LOL, the key is to love your life and love yourself, live to the fullest and never ever look back with regret. You will be an awesome old woman!!!!! LOL
