Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits. The image below is from shutterstock.com
For the visually challenged writer, the image shows a group of four people in the evening sitting around a campfire on the sand near a lake. One of the group is playing a guitar.
It often happened this way, after a long day of surfing and swimming, taking time to relax and enjoy each other’s company around the fire. Joe would play his guitar and he was good at it, and the rest of us sang off key, but no one cared. It was the eighties and we were carefree.
