Happy Friday! We've had the most wonderful weather here the past couple of days. Lots of clouds, (you know how much I love cloudy days), thunderstorms, and lower temperatures. Our afternoon temps were actually in the 70's yesterday. This time of year, we're usually lucky if the over night low dip... Read more of this blog post »

It's interesting to me
That the decades "count" the most
That's when it hits me worst
Classic - PTSD

The memories return
Along with feelings, bad

The gut-wrenching pain
The total disbelief
How could those thats have happened?

Days and weeks of fear
Trembleling at sounds
Shadows, menacing

Diamonds!

I was writing the last scenes of Chapter 1 of A Traitor's War and discovered a far better ending. What was a solid, competent chapter ending become an ABSOLUTE RIPPER!

Adjusted Chapter 2 slightly to accomodate the changes.
