  4. Thanks everyone, busy morning so replying in bulk. Glad you enjoyed it. As to sad or not, it was sad they were gone but it was happy because she had so many good memories...with the shutter as her prompt. At least that was what I had in mind. ;-)

  12. Thanking for linking up with us on our site. Feel free to grab the code and put the list on your site.

    Nice piece above. My only technical critique is that you used some commas as periods, creating comma-splice run on sentences.

  13. @Masquerade CrewI know...it's due to the ten sentence restriction I've put on myself. Have to grant a little leeway to get out a whole story. LOL! Not the best practice and not something I do for publication. ;-)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Great piece! It's funny how objects like a shutter could make someone think of so many fond memories.

  15. Your writing is wonderful. You are so good at evoking emotion & you do it in such a small amount of space. I'm so jealous. You're amazing!

  17. Memory - it's good to have touchstones, talismans, those things we can tie out memories to.

    Great writing in this.

  18. I was bracing myself for something unexpected. Instead it was sweet and sad ... which I didn't expect! :)
