After a long day of paddling, I settled in for the night and spent several hours ruminating on some ideas I had for my book "A Long Paddle Home."
As the fire pushed the dampness from my clothes, the steam mingled with the smoke and rose into the darkening sky.
I envisioned Lisa - a character within the story, sitting by a similar fire and wondered how she would feel as the darkness slowly stole my sight.
I found her voice and transcribed it into the book.
This is a short excerpt from the novel.
