The Master's Eye


Magpie Tales

MAG #113



He worked tirelessly all night, under the watchful eye of the master.  There could be no mistakes.  He wasn't as proficient as he used to be, in an earlier time and more familiar place. He couldn't see as well and his fingers didn't seem to obey the cadence of his brain as he counted out the steps, one by one. If he placed just one card haphazardly, his entire house would come crashing down. His hands shook.  He heard the master sigh quietly. "You better lay off the beer", the master quipped. "You seem to have lost your mojo".



Please visit my friends at Magpie Tales to enjoy other interpretations of this Marc Chagall painting, Red Roofs.  Thanks Tess for your great prompts each week!

  8. Seem to have lost your Mojo... I had an instant image of Da Vinci saying this to one of his students. He was such a character, I bet he would have too !
    Very nice, thanks for the smile.

  9. An interesting story. I also love the Marc Chagall painting you've posted. While looking at it, the red goes down like a fine wine. No wonder Picasso said when Chagall died, "Now there's no one left who knows anything about color."

  13. Oh, No! It's terrible to lose your MOJO. I will be ninety, sitting by the fire and drinking beer, so help me Jim Morrison. Lesson learned, never lay off the beer, err you lose your MOJO. Thanks for the tip!!
