    Hi there – as per my personal challenge of exploring different genres…Bangsian fantasy is visited this week.

    I did actually start this story thinking about weird or extraordinary things you can do with a ladies purse or bag…. and it grew from there…. Not really the direction I was aiming at – but then I am hardly in charge of the characters who visit my green room….

    This came as the central conflict first – and it was up to the Universe to send me the item (there is some blurb in the comments section about how it all happened if anyone is intersted – I love how apparently disparate ideas and angles merge into one!)

    This continues my interest in exploring a narrative from a child’s point of view (I’ve recently read “The God of Small Things” and the Australian “Anatomy of Wings”.

    This week’s story is a more existential interpretation of extraordinary power. The power of memories of one’s past brought on by the familiarity of a treasured item. I hope you enjoy it.

    Haha. I saw this prompt and thought of something instantly. What a lovely way to jump into Fiction Friday!
