Sandcastles : Friday Fictioneers

  1. Dear Graham,

    Nicely done. I hope your cold doesn’t hang on long and you’re up to snuff soon. (Bad pun, sorry.) Being bilingual is a great thing. I’m what you call semi I think. I’m fairly decent with Spanish and know a bit of Hebrew. What I don’t know I can usually find the translations for online. 😉

    1. Thanks Rochelle, I’m hanging on as best I can between tissues and nasal sprays but still enjoying reading and writing. I admit online research is often useful (even when you’re bilingual!!)


  2. Ah.. yes being bilingual helps me very little so far. Swedish is such a small language globally… But we really saw the same thing in that picture… (I googled Chateau de Sable… but sandcastle has the same meaning in Swedish… also as a metaphor of course)… Sounds like a bad omen to call your house a sandcastle, but I have a feeling their marriage is also on less than solid ground.

  3. I am sure that lots of people lost places that they once called home, it is heart-wrenching to read. A very good story,
    on another note, you are very lucky because if I get a head cold then my dictation product will not recognise my voice, and I get no writing done!
    Get well soon 🙂

  4. Talk about asking the Universe for something… I have to agree calling your house a Chateau de sable is not sending the proper vibes! Superbe histoire qui est malheureusement trop réaliste!

  5. I hope you feel better soon. Great story, too sad in the end. Anger and tears is the only thing left for too many when such bubbles burst. We have a simialr saying in German: auf Sand gebaut, built on sand.
