So far, 2015 has been full. Of surprises, of challenges, of revelations, of responsibilities. But I can see a bit of space opening up in the near future and I'm looking forward to getting my thoughts down more often. I'm happy to share this week's 99 word flash fiction challenge, Courtesy of Carrot Ranch Communications. Check out the contributions from the many talented Rough Writers.

My head hurts. The pressure has been building for two days in advance of the storm that's moving our way. I want to lie down. I want to get in the car and drive away. I want to forget the way he left this morning. What he said. What I didn’t.
