A Love Story for Women's Day - The Door
Cheers to all my girl friends! Happy International Women's Day 2021 :) In tribute to you all, here's a short story I wrote a couple of years ago for The Golden Women's Resource Centre's Women & Art book.
Every story begins with a spark, deep in one's imagination, where the subconscious mind mingles with reality. The spark for this story originated in a quaint homely restaurant in Golden BC, as a friend told me about a door that had been returned to her by an old lover, in effect re-igniting a love never forgotten. Thank you for the spark, Donna :)
Inspired by my love for questioning society and the assumptions we make, The Door will lure you in, tickle your senses - maybe even make you blush - then stir in a twist. Although this story is almost entirely fictitious, I wrote it in support of ... ah well, you'll have to wait for the twist!
