A Simple Thought

The art of simplicity is a puzzle of complexity.

"The riddle isn’t in how we managed to survive, digging our fingernails into the scorched earth and sowing life where there was none.  It’s pointless to sit and try to figure out how we came to be here, long after the bombs smoldered away and the chemicals ate every last snatch of green from view.  We rose from ash; we rose from oblivion.  There is blue above us, once again- a clear blue, a significant blue.  And through the gray destruction, life winds its way toward it.  The riddle, now, lies in what we do with the city we have inherited from the bones of those who sought to destroy it."


from my novel, The Pusher

there will be one winner, and two runners-up

winners will be selected using a number generator thing like random.org
