In FROZEN they sing about letting go. In my book Freeze Frame: How to Write Flash Memoir, I encourage readers to let go and write in the smallest, briefest of glimpses. A moment may not have a beginning, middle or end--often it just is.
Lighting the Lamp
At the dune shack with the blue door, the light subsides, blue has left the sky, and there is a stillness within the insect-infused dusk, a veil settles, softening the sand peaks, yet sharpening the pinpricks of stars, the outline of the Pilgrim monument in the distance.
And, when the last ounce of sun has left the sky and the shadows have all fled, I light the lamp.
