For the nitty gritty

Studying not going well  
What on earth made me think this was do'able? 

Took a deep breath. Switched projects.
Writing not going well.
Is this story ever going to hang together?

Took a long walk. Stomped along.

Somebody had been busy with their chalk on the bike path leading into the university. 
The nerve of  these students!

Oh wait a minute -

Mariah's own feet, however, seemed incapable of moving forward. There was no longer any thing, or any one, tying her to this place. What was holding her back from making her own journey back to 1893?

Very slowly, the woman reached out to part the clump of sage, behind which, the great bear’s body had  disappeared just moments before.

Take the plunge yourself. CLICK on the illustration above,
