About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

Of the People – Haibun – February 28, 2016

They’d met to protest and the Government actually thought there’d have been more people than actually showed up.  Their concern was about the drought which had lowered the levels of sweet water all throughout the land.  People had been grumbling about the … Continue reading

Hidden Visions – Haibun – February 16, 2016

I walk through the  town square and it occurs to me that all these tourists snapping their photographs and drinking their drinks at the side-walk cafes are completely oblivious to the cares and worries of our daily lives.  We walk in different dimensions. They’ll … Continue reading

Reflections in Padua – Haibun – February 3, 2016

I walked in the rain in Padua remembering other rainfalls and other cities.  Weaving through the people coming and going from the station, I soon found myself at the bus stop.  A sea of umbrellas over a mass of people stood waiting for … Continue reading

The Voice – Science Fiction – January 28, 2016

Abandoned … this house and all that is hidden within.  Years of silence has fallen upon the house but once there was the sound of human life.  Not only is the house abandoned, the whole town has been abandoned.  If you look inside … Continue reading

Silence Fell – Dark Fiction – January 25, 2016

“The sun is fading over the horizon and there will be no staying your dolorous state of guilt.  You might have elicited the help of a deity, like myself,  in order to deaden the pain of those immortal claws that will shred your soul when darkness … Continue reading

Hula Hooping – Short Story – January 23, 2016

  Sharon used to trip up as the hoop refused to go ’round and ’round her waist  and sometimes she’d fall when it’d reach her ankles.  The uncoordinated rapid back and forth movement of her pelvis, which she thought should have kept the colourful … Continue reading

Kitsune and the Frog – Fairy Tales – January 23, 2016

“Grandma, before I go to bed, tell me why you have that stone frog praying near the fish pond.” the little boy said, trying to prolong having to go to bed. And his Grandmother replied: One day the beautiful but impertinent … Continue reading

Ghostly Keys – Short Fiction – January 21, 2016

In the silence rusty locks creak as ghostly keys open the cells. Through the dust mote dance in the light a daily life continues.  The shuffling of the slippered women in drab drill smocks shuffle down the corridor out into a hall. … Continue reading

Snow Dreams – Short Fiction – January 18, 2016

There’s something mystical in the first snow fall of the year. A special quality of silence, Janice thought,  one could almost hear the snowflakes fall. She’d arrived early and was waiting for the night shift to get off.  Listening to classical music, she began to day-dream. She … Continue reading

A Voyage – Flash Fiction – January 18, 2016

  Riding down a country road, the snow lays even and crisp, the trees laced in fairy ice and a soft piece of music plays on the radio. There’s no pressing schedule, just being together is enough, we’ve nothing to … Continue reading
