August 4

Somewhere in Ohio, and down in El Paso, someone’s son or daughter, their father or mother, their uncle or aunt, brother or sister, or maybe a grandparent, has been killed by another gun-wielding lunatic, and we will hear of thoughts and prayers from many of our “leaders.” But by tomorrow it will all be forgotten, and next week we will weep once again.

That sad wind blown, I have another story – a little flash fiction – that went up today. Hope you enjoy.

A side note – when news of El Paso came, we decided to see Yesterday (the movie), as  we’d heard it was light and fun, and most certainly we could use the distraction. It was both and well worth the watch.

(Just missed Cinco de Mayo!)

My story, Absolution Trail, has been accepted by Spillwords Press and will go up on May 27th. Sometimes, despite the best of circumstances, we allow our past to haunt us, as it the case with Marie in this story. When the story is published, I’ll add the link here and on the Stories page.
