Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1038: Something Else

The word count is working so I get to write this on the regular laptop of which is the thing that I use.

There also is a break in the rain. Maybe there is some sort of good fortune afoot.

Now, to be fair, rain and not rain do not necessarily mean good fortune and bad fortune. Sometimes you get tired of the rain. Still, rain is nice and lovely, especially in a country that is not necessarily known for having an abundance of water.

I don’t know where I was going with that and I feel I’ve already broken this bit of writing up far more than necessary, so the rest of this will be about something else.

Now something else is a thing that is not the thing that is current. It is out there and it is something else. It is not this, but that. It sits out of reach until it is in reach and offers an alternative to what is current. Perhaps it is not a good alternative, but it remains an alternative and for that perhaps it is worthy of respect, or something.

Well, being an alternative does not necessarily make something worthy of respect, but in this case maybe it does. Maybe it is meant to be respected. Maybe something else is honourable and has integrity and stays where it needs to be at all times. It does not stretch across eons and it does not offer anything more than it is. However, it certainly can be enticing and in that enticement it may lead to the downfall of many, for reaching for something else before it is time to reach for something else may only lead to folly. Therefore, the handling of something else must be a handling that offers a balance and allows all options to be considered so that the move made to reach for something else is as strategic and well-informed as possible.

Sure, you could rush in and be all foolish about it, and perhaps you’d succeed. There is no denying that that certainly is a possibility. However, what if you are not successful? What if your reaching outward for something else before it is time to reach out for something else leads to your demise? What if you suddenly trigger the accelerated decline of civilisation? Did you really consider everything before you lurched forward, or did you decide that there was no need to think about what it was that you were doing and instead went right in and tried to reach for something that may remain out of your grasp?

These are things all worth considering, but they are not worth considering now. Right now there are other things to think about, but they won’t be thought about as there is something else on the way and soon it will be here and thus there will be even more options than before. As such, I now need to remain alert so I don’t miss something else.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:34:81

Not sure as to what I was going for here. Maybe some sort of thought thing.

Written at home.
