Genre/General Fiction (99 words)


She set up her easel and paints, angling it to get the best light. Sitting on the small fold up stool she studied the broken building. Memories flooded her mind. Younger days of playing around the brightly painted barn. Grandfather and father working inside. Sparkling sunshine flooding her private playground. She picked up her brush and colors built on canvas.

Not of rundown and forgotten, but of bustling and worked filled days. The ghosts of the past watched with approval as an aged spotted hand brought life once more to worn, Β weathered wood. It lived again on canvas, painted with loving memories.


I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  4. You never had anything to worry about with writing, Jackie. You do such a wonderful job with these flash stories. I’m always amazed at the emotion and amount of story you tell in so few words. Love the imagery here.
