Six sighing sentence story -the Wakefield Doctrine-

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)


The word this week is….. Draft   (with an ‘R’, clark, with an ‘R’). That should be simple and straight forward enough.

If you’re new ’round here, this is Friend of the Doctrine zoe‘s most enjoyable bloghop, the Six Sentence Story. The title is kinda the full instructions, story of no more than and no less than six sentences. With the prompt word involved in some manner with the story. There’s a crew of bloggers what come around to this place on Thursdays just to take on the challenge. You should join us.


“Do you feel that?”

“Feel what?”

“I don’t know, a breeze, a draft, is there a window open?”

“No, there isn’t.”

“Maybe I should get up and check, just to be sure, just need to get my bearings, give me a second, I don’t seem to be able to move.”

“We’re almost there, it’ll be alright, I won’t leave you.”

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one


  1. UP says:

    I hate a cold unexplained presence in a room!!

  2. Haunting, but beautiful in a tender way too, I read into this tale that the winds are coming to take him home. I loved the way you finished it.

  3. valj2750 says:

    I agree with Wendy. Hauntingly sad and beautiful, but also uplifting. DAMN! (as a Clark might say)

  4. Don’t ask me why. I thought of Meet Joe Black.
    Simple presentation of a complex event. You imbued the moment with all that was necessary.

  5. Yes, a very distinct scenario – beautifully done.

  6. messymimi says:

    My hope is the end won’t be so cold. Very well told.

      I suspect that there’s cold (which I hate) and there’s cold…which may not entail anything as crude as shivering

  7. oldegg says:

    What a poignant tale this is as the old married couple cling to each other not wanting to let go.

    Sad, but wonderful to have the ability to recognize what is about to happen and to give support and reassurance that things will be alright. Great story told in an unusual way. Enjoyed.

  9. Deborah Lee says:

    Nicely written and bittersweet.

      hey, thanks (its funny how we see the same scene and yet the more subtle emotional inferences can vary as much as they do)
