Carousel Questions

Carousel5_063020

Carved and colossal, how long will you stand in shiny, sterile silence?

Round and repeating, what has happened to your cotton-candy companions?

Merry and mighty, what will become of your wheel of carefree independence?

***

On this Independence Day holiday weekend in the United States, we have so many hot spots. So many worries. So many questions. So few answers. One thing is certain. We’re better off  celebrating this Fourth of July safely and quietly at home.

If you find yourself feeling queasy from news reports, missing the carousels of life or in need of a little inspiration, consider getting lost in a true story of reflection, hope and survival.

From July 3 through July 7, you can download a Kindle version of my latest book, An Unobstructed View, on Amazon for just ninety-nine cents.

Stay well, my friends!

  3. It’s certainly a very quiet weekend here in Sligo. Although the travel restrictions are lifted and people rush out the door, the pandemic crisis are far from over. That’s why I choose to stay at home. The traffic is heavily congested yet again, the beaches are crowded and many people don’t even wear masks 🙈 Either way, I hope you had a great time celebrating, Mark 😊
