This week’s contribution is reflection rather than fiction but once I saw the photo prompt I had to get this out of my system. I hope you don’t mind.

Making Jam – a work in progress …..
I read once that when an old woman dies, a library burns. It wasn’t until my mother’s death that I was hit with the absolute truth of that statement.
Where are all those members of our far-flung family that left Ireland during waves of emigration? What stories were never told because they seemed irrelevant or were too painful? Did I imagine it, or did you tell me that my Grandmother wrote a book on botany?
And by the way, how much water do you add to blackcurrant jam?
When an old woman dies a library burns. We are each a library in the making. Collect and share well.
