Art, words, Kaiserslautern, Woven Tales - My week in a nutshell.

My art for the week....

In a reverie...

she dreamt on...




Now for the writing I did this week in response to these prompts, 

3WW- brief, expose, insist

 Treasure - Wednesday prompt 

Sunday Scribblings - phobia

It was just a brief flash of pure red, unmasked anger in his eyes. 

Already exposed to years of warfare between us, I knew the intensity of that trenchant look. 

I knew better than to insist audibly that I was right.

 Silently, despite my phobic stand on having arguments, I raised my eyes and looked levelly at him. 

This time something in my steady gaze quieted him. 

I know it is just a temporary respite until the fusillade begins anew with the next volley of invectives. 

It is time for me to open my hidden treasure chest. 

I am sure those who fled to the woods buried it there, in this forgotten vegetable patch, before the fire burnt them alive.

These pieces of gold will guarantee my safe passage across the borders. 

Tomorrow I flee. To the woods and beyond. 

And now, an exciting news from me is that my journal page was published by Woven Tale Press. It's on the e-stands now. Click on this link to have a look.

I must say I love this!! :-)

My son, meanwhile, is getting ready to join TU Kaiserslautern, Germany, for his MS. I am happy and proud of his achievement but also a little sad to think of him going so far away! I hope Germany treats him well. He is in the midst of learning German now! 

So that's all for now, folks!

Linking, as I always do, with PPF, AJED, CED, SS
