Life is much more successfully looked at from a single window after all. – F. Scott Fitzgerald in The Great Gatsby

Tears over,
Her kids lugged her comfy chair out back.
They knew that presently the day would be over,
And a little later, they might believe her life would be over
With the chair away… In the yard.

Aging… Um…. Maturing. Still wondering what I’ll be when I grow up.

    The wordsmith weaves a story of a thousand endings in a single frame. Love it Ted. Great post work.

  • Felt so sad to see both the wall and the chair… Each a piece of shack living Rosalie. The story wrote itself. Thanks.

    What a great find and presentation

  • It’s all gone now Hans. Bulldozers tore away the place and its been replaced by prosperous, job creating, high tech buildings. That’s a very good thing all around. Thanks Hans.

    Infinitely sad – wonderful image!

  • There’s a happy ending Shulie… see my response to Hans up above. It took a while to have prosperity slop up against this mess, but perhaps the ghost is pleased with the result?

    Ted, your processing and words have taken this to a different place from where you found it…what was used, discarded and ‘to-be-forgotten’, will live on….it’s a great testament…
    A FAVE for me..

  • Uh-huh, some one’s moments of comfort had faded in the moment I came by. But…n ow this spot sports a few prosperous new buildings that house a couple hundred high tech jobs. So its a place of new comforts on this side of that crack I found between before the chair rotted outside and the new hopes after its removal.
