Survivor


Her limbs are so heavy; she is pinned helpless to the bed. How can a head filled with mist weigh so much? It is impossible to raise it from the pillow. Even as she calls for help she knows there will be no response. It would have been better to be located at ground zero.

After seeing the aftermath I would tend to agree.

There's no way I would want to be a survivor. Very thought-provoking stuff.

cathy said...

hammer, just hearing about it was bad enough.


mona, peace comes in pieces.

blancodeviosa, some things must not be forgotten.

lime,I hope so.

michael, How can you tell?

ann, I'll be over later to have a look.

val, surviving is a lot harder than dying at times.

Michael said...

How can I tell? Guys' intuition I suppose. It's a gift we blokes have.

Wow. Very powerful Cathy. Even more powerful than my new Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6300 (1.86GHz,1066FSB) with 2MB cache.

You can't expect me to be totally serious all of the time, can you?

thats an art to say all that by pics and words.

Powerful post. So allow me to ruin the moment by irreverently noting that a "bigamist" can also be a Italian fog.

cathy said...

pankaj gupta, You're too kind.

puerileuwaite, LOL.
