Daily Prompt: Famous

cemetry with me

I found one of my old photos in the day when I played with photo shop: my cat Nera on the left.

Me famous, forget it. We eventually all return to were we came from and what happens in between might or might not leave a mark on the world. A strange thought came to me today. It is wonderful weather and the sun is  shining so what could possibly go wrong?

Scientists tell us that one day the sun will no longer shine. It will be a dark star, a burn out, a black hole in the sky. I think the great Steven Hawkins got quite near to the truth of the matter. On the other hand I just read in knowledgeable wikipedia that “A black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it”, so perhaps the whole finishing of the sun is not so bad.

Nothing can escape from inside it, so we might still be living our lives, carrying on as usual and not noticing that we are just a dark side of the sun. Of course we will no longer be writing The Daily Prompt, because that will no longer exist from 31st May 2018 for those that have not yet read the news. All those famous people will remain famous, and people like me who never became famous will not be forgotten, because we were never really remembered.

I now have the reputation locally of being the lady in the wheelchair with the camera touring around places in her village. Perhaps when The Daily Prompt is eventually killed, assassinated, dissolved or sent to the land of the forgotten blogs, a tiny fragment of an angloswiss blog might escape from the dark sun and there will be a plaque somewhere  “The Last Blogger angloswiss-chronicles.com, may her blogs be never forgotten”.

And now I have better things to do like eating my evening meal. Mr. Swiss has again baked one of his famous apple flans.

  1. I’m not famous, but I think I am working on infamous. We went to a memorial service and another Media of Boston even not so long ago — and discovered that almost everyone reads my blog. This apparently never shows up in the stats, which I’m beginning to think are totally bogus, but I was quite taken aback. I don’t know if that is the same as famous people read me and I had NOT idea. The hidden audience!

    Anyway, you are definitely famous with me!

    • And you are famous with me. When I began in WordPress I could be lucky to get 4-5 likes per blog. Sometimes they even went unnoticed. I don’t know what happened, but somehow my little corner of the blogworld was noticed. I supposed the Freshly Pressed entry helped, but that was killed off a couple of years ago.
