Every picture tells a story… don’t it? | ‘THE CROSSING’

One of my social media connections, a reader who has enjoyed some of my writing, that I also now consider an online friend, posted this picture from a vacation. One of his connections, also one of mine, Debra commented something to the effect that, “Dennis Lowery could probably write a story about it…” I’ve done that several times for people, taken a picture they sent me and then written a story based on what I see in the picture. Well, I had to rise to the challenge. Dan’s picture became: ‘THE CROSSING,’ a 3,371 word short–suspense–story. The story is included in my NIGHT DESCENDS collection.

PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.
