Blows through the empty campus
He feels young again
Hello, everyone! It’s the Old Soldier here feeling nostalgic after a nice long walk earlier this afternoon through the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.
The campus was like a ghost town. Well, school is out for the summer and it is Saturday and it is the Memorial Day weekend. And Memorial Day brings back memories, too, for the Old Soldier, of a nineteen-year-old kid on his way to the Vietnam War.
But that’s all behind me. Now I’m retired and the editor/publisher of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. And if you like my little blog, why don’t you click the follow button so that you won’t miss a single issue of the most dynamic flash fiction magazine on the Internet.
Read. Study. Write. Submit.
