Every Friday authors worldwide gather round the virtual fireside of Rochelle Wisoff and share stories of 100 words, prompted by a common photograph, and exchange constructive criticism. Readers’ comments are also welcome. This week’s photo has been provided by Kent Bonham. Thanks, Kent. Your photo inspired the following very late entry from me this week.
That was Tod. We were in a junk shop, hunting for stuff to ‘upcycle’.
“Plaque.” I showed him.
“‘Reminder of Cornwall,’” he read out loud. It was printed beneath a postcard. To its right was a slot for a photo.
“Strange – a well-groomed woman in a tailored fifties dress and heels standing ankle deep in grass stroking a cow’s nose.”
“Cow’s tailored, too.”
“The background …”
“Same view as postcard.” I took out, flipped the photo. “With Pat’s love. What’ve you found?”
“Pod. Mysterious remains of …?”
“Life. Same as mine.”
“You gonna upcycle it?”
