We’ve been on vacation; I’m late! I’ll spare you the warm details as most of us are dealing with the start of winter, but it was lovely. However, my dear computer died, all alone in the room, while I was out frolicking. I am lost without her! Admittedly, I have the shakes and chills from withdrawal, and the mere idea that I won’t be able to get some of my work back, sends me into waves of nausea too. Send your healing thoughts, dear Friday Fictioneer friends! J (And no, I hadn’t backed it up in a couple of weeks, so all the new work is trapped on my dead Mac).
Now I’m home, and stole my son’s computer to do some catching up. It may be hard to get much reading done, as my time on his computer is limited, and I’m TERRIBLE with smart phones! I’ll do my best. Such a fabulous photo, by Roger Bultot; I couldn’t resist! Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our dynamic leader.

Light At The End of The Tunnel
“Hold my hand and stay close,” Chad cautioned Ella.
“I can barely see my own hands, let alone yours,” she whimpered.
“I feel fresh air; there must be an exit nearby. Don’t be afraid.”
Chad felt along the slimy walls with one hand, and tried to sound reassuring.
Three weeks since catastrophic blasts and the destruction of all they knew, and both teens were exhausted. Water was running low, as they made their way through the cold darkness.
“Look, there’s a light!”
“I don’t know whether to be grateful or afraid,” Ella whispered.
“There’s only one way to find out.”
