Need





Right now being discovered was a huge, wild need.

He would be back, her mind said quietly, and relief came comforting like a blanket.

She wanted him to realize her life had wings.

This was written for the Trifextra Challenge for this weekend :) 

In explanation, my hubby's away for the weekend, and I'm getting ready to launch my own business as a life coach. 


This weekend we are playing another type of word game with you.  Below are photos from the 33rd page of one of our very favorite books, Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteridge.  (images hereWhat we want you to do is to scour the page (click to enlarge), choose 33 words, and reshape those words into a piece of your own.  Your piece does not have to tell an entire story.  We just want to see what you can do with this particular word bank.  Punctuation is up to you.  Use whatever you need, whether or not it appears in the photos.
