Trouble at Grandma's

The silver Dodge Durango, pulled up the gravel road toward a grey house with blue edging. Flowers bloomed all around, the air was heavy with the scent of their blooms.

Two Trouble Makers

"Momma, Momma," shouted a raven-haired, little 5 year old girl.

That Magic Dance

Have you ever noticed how little things -- a smell -- a texture -- a song, can bring back a memory so vivid you’d swear you were there, in that moment, once again?

Here and Gone

Here and Gone 

By Bel

 

 

The sun was bright and overhead.  A woman walking along a path towards him was slowly coming into focus.  

 

The old man closed his eyes for a moment and rubbed them slowly.  As he opened them, he looked around, adjusting a blanket on his lap.  Benches, trees, stones and paths: this was a park.  Looking closer at the stone in front of him he recognized the markings on its smooth face.  Carved into the centre of the stone’s surface was a large oak tree with a wolf sleeping contently at its base.  The roots of the tree continued down, beneath the imagined ground, forming two boxes, one on the left and one on the right.  The left box had a name and two dates, the right, a name and one.  The left name was his wife’s; the right, his.  He realized where he was.  It was the afternoon and he was in a graveyard.  He was visiting his wife.

We the inhabitants of the higher dimensional continua have become increasingly annoyed at the manner in which what you call "other dimensions" are being portrayed in your world. We are by nature tolerant and easy-going, but we've just about had enough!
