I have two related "55"s, not necessarily fiction. If these are not satisfactory just mark "FAIL" on my paper, and I'll retake the course next semester. Also, I'm including the titles in my word count--is that permissible? Mr G-Man, please answer , inquiring minds want to know.
Rabbi, is there nothing that I do about which I may be proud? The Rabbi spoke: There was a man who sang so well, people remarked, "What a voice he has. He sings divinely." Just then a fellow happened by who said, "Well, if I had his voice, I'd sing that well, too".
A reflective thought about SIN: Rabbi, you have been teaching us about sin. Here is my question: "What, in your judgment is the greatest sin in the world?" The Rabbi thinks, then speaks: "The greatest sin in the world is that of the person who sees other human beings as sinners." (In other words...Pride!)
Thoughts expressd in these two 55s are taken from somewhere in the writings of Antony De Mello S.J. I can't find which book. I am grateful to have recently "discovered" his powerful messages on peace, prayer, meditation, living and dying.
Flash Fiction Friday 55

Let the G-Man know if you write one
and read the ones of your fellow writers.
