The Possibilities with Time Travel #flashfiction #amwriting


“And there you are” my tour guide said as we stood on a field, in who knows where, facing three doors.

“Really,That’s It?

We only travelled to Paris during the French Revolution where I almost lost my head. (my eyes narrowed)

Stalingrad during the siege of  42 – 43.  I got frost bite (gritting teeth)

Kilimanjaro  was a cheat because we didn’t start at the base. (throws up arms)

What about the blue door?

Intergalactic? No oxygen? A minor technicality. No gravity? We’ll bring the door.  No Starbucks? What kind of second-rate travel agency do you work for anyway????”

And here we are at the beginning of this week’s travel in 100 words through Flash Fiction with our guide Rochelle Wisoff- Fields. Enjoy the journey!

    • There are some great studies about parnets and unhappiness. Basically, parnets are unhappy but score higher on other measures of importance to over all well-being.You always have to be careful when you talk about happiness. We do many things that we do not like, but are better off for doing it.

    • Amberr MeadowsSusan, there are indeed a lot of meitrcs involved. I just try to be the best parent I can, give lots of love, affection, and discipline when needed, and we are doing just fine. I don’t read books to make me the expert parent, because all parents have flaws. I think it is all about balance and a significant show of love very often.

  1. I bet a hot coffee or latte would’ve been welcome to have in that Stalingrad visit. I like your time travel take on the three doors — and you threw in great details in those parentheses. I don’t think this tour guide is going to get a good review, not with those narrowed eyes and gritted teeth!

  2. Well time travel is one thing, but intergalactic without oxygen is a bit too much. The problem here is the agency has bitten off more than it can chew – intergalactic, historical, we really have not got all the bugs out of our space/time contiguous travel machine. Better to sit in Starbucks with a latte. A soya latte. Bet that would be hard to get in 18th centruy Paris.
