While the lovers were out celebrating Valentine’s Day lightning struck their house, which caught fire.
When they returned home they found it burnt to the ground. They wept, more for the cat than for their property. But then they kissed.
‘So long as love each other all is well!’

I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?
