A Tiny Break

Hello friends and fellow Fictioneers, I’m on a short break. Work overwhelms me, so does the heat and everything. I have no intention to stay away for long though, maybe another week or two.

I’ve rediscovered reading a lot. I was rereading books from childhood a while ago (fun and also horrible) and now am re-reading old favourites and it’s great. I did remember what it felt like to read, and read, and read some more but was too distracted by too many things for far too long. Now I got back in the reading mode, I hardly visit social media, seldom watch a movie, no TV, but read.

And I’m cooking/preserving a load of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants we ‘rescued’ from a farmer’s rubbish heap. Today I’ll make Ajvar.

See you soon. 🙂

Graffity

Stella looks around and sighs. Yesterday she put the glass tables up, today they are ‘adorned’ with graffiti, like everything else in the neighbourhood. Disillusioned kids without hope for a future, she thinks. They need an outlet for their frustration.
