The Puzzle

My response to this week’s 100 word story prompt: Puzzle  

Life is like a puzzle. A jumble of seemingly unrelated pieces and events. The abstract design of thought and concepts. How does one pull all the randomness together into a cohesive work of art? One piece at a time. It took most of my 20’s and 30’s just to outline the borders. In my 40’s the center started to come together and in my 50’s the picture finally took shape. Now, in my 60’s the picture’s intent is clear. Even with the few missing pieces that I will spend the remainder of my life filling in, it is breath taking.
