Flash 55


 ~~ space and how it is utilized in both living and/or work places.

Charlie Dehner



We flirted with words, acted on impulse (ever so playfully at first.) Words that flew back and forth though space, across time zones, continents, oceans.  Connected on a deep level  without eye contact, casual touch, body language. Stories, histories, likes, dislikes. We shared tragedy and triumph.  Space and time ultimately ended us.  I miss him.

  1. A true intellectual connection can transcend time and space but we are also physical beings.. A marriage of true minds... so many impediments. I am so moved by your final three words.

  8. Sooo nicely written, Helen. Words 'matter'.
    "When the cat's away, 'the mouse' will play."
    My first real girl friend was playing while her cat was in the Air Force. I knew of him but was led to believe that he was history.
    'I miss her,' also other girl friends and friends that were girls and boys. Facebook and other searches havn't been any help.

  9. Profoundly moving... ups and downs, time, time run out... Make the most of every day is the lesson here and I guess - learn form the good and the bad - and love throughout it all? Very moving.

  11. Time and space will take its toll eventually. But it was good when it lasted which was good compensation!
