Flash Friday 55: 10.23.09

attic windowThe window in the attic is my only friend. The brightly colored stained glass, marred by cracks, is the most beautiful thing in this place. Most days I sit in front of the attic window because it reminds me that beyond it, maybe there is hope.

I have lived at Manteno State Mental Hopsital since 1947.

    I like the strength that you capture with this characterization.

    Awesome! I agree with Dayner also. Great imagery. What a great hook this would be for the beginning of a book. I would continue to read. You should save this nugget and explore it some day. Like maybe next week!

      I’m already ahead of you! This may or may not be an excerpt of a thought about my story. Plot happens, so we’ll see, but she’s one of my characters.

    Great imagery! Hopeful yet very sad.
