Classic Science Fiction space travel generation ship computer systems

Originally published in the anthology, DESOLATE PLACES, from Hadley Rille Books (Eric T. Reynolds, Editor), this science fiction story is an example of great parts that don't quite mesh perfectly. Still, good story with a good payoff.

Classic Mother/daughter flash memoir spinster

This story is about my mother and me. It's flash memoir, not fiction, though of course all memoir is filtered through time and likely has fictional elements. It's an old story. I'm still technically a spinster, but I'm also in a committed relationship. The picture is of my mother at the age of 23. My mother loved this story. I never showed it to my father.

I love steam trains and out walking in Worcestershire beside the River Severn heard a steam train on the Severn Valley Railway. It was spring, the trees had burst into life and in a small clearing, the sun shone through the tree canopy. The train approached and I quickly took this shot. It took me straight back to my childhood when steam ruled. just look at the colours of engine and coaches fitting perfectly with the colours of spring!
