short story

'A Chance Meeting'  33x28"  oil pastel;  Kathleen Faulkner


You never know what you'll find down by the water. 


One day I decided to walk down along the channel past the old rotted dock.  I had so much on my mind.   
When I finally stopped and raised my head I caught a glimpse of a moment.. 
and then it was gone.
