Is there music in the space between the notes? Can we hear music in the silences between heartbeats? British bandleader Jools Holland talks with other musicians during the COVID lockdown. This week we drape our bare mannequin in the cloak of silence.
And I offer writing of my own, a piece of flash fiction. “Jonathan’s Last Note.”
Putting a grin on our faces isn’t easy these days. I share a few lines of humor from two books I recently read. Authors James McBride with Deacon King Kong and Louise Penny with All the Devils Are Here drape our weekly mannequin in smiles.
And I offer another short story of mine, about a writer’s own King Kong.
Take me somewhere I’ve never been. This is what I look for in a story. Werner Sonne has written a fine novel on the post-WWII division of Palestine to create the Israeli state. This week on Mannequin Monday we clothe our story in the garb of an RN in a combat zone.
And I offer a story of a hospital worker’s act of kindness.
