Friday Flash 55 -- Walt and Anna

CNN photo



So it has come to this...thought Anna, as Walt amused himself on his smart phone. She reflected beside the reflecting pool on how the years had separated them. 

Walt smiled delightedly as he confirmed their Netherlands vacation with Expedia. Soon, he would surprise Anna with her dream trip to the land of her ancestors.

Going on vacation? I'm probably reading it wrong, because I'm seeing vacation everywhere right now.

Amber Lee said...

This was so tender and poignant. Strong connections are like that. (Hugs)Indigo

Dianne~ I really appreciated that you smiled at this!

Brian~ Am heading over to read your Poetics in a little bit. I'm sure the experience served as a powerful muse.

izzy~ Thanks. A lesson in not jumping to conclusions!

G-Man~ Nope, she looks every bit the earthling to me.
It was good to be back this week!

Myrna~ Yup, what a surprise...although I personally would rather be in on the planning of such a vacation!

Alice Audrey~ Oh. I. Wish. No vacation happening here, but dreaming is a bit of a getaway. (Lately I have been thankful that I wasn't on a cruise, however!!!)

Amber Lee~ That is just wonderful about your grandparents! They are great role models for you and your husband. ;)

Indigo~ Thanks and I'm glad you liked this one. I appreciate your visits. :)
