The Day of the Crash

"Terminal 4 swarmed with people, the smell of wet wool and jet fuel thick around me.  I wait for her inside the sliding glass doors, the frigid winter wind slamming into me when ever they open, and instead force myself to visualize a balmy Puerto Rican breeze, laced with the scent of hibiscus and sea salt. The soft, accented Spanish swirling around me like a warm bath, blotting out the person I was before."

What do you think, pass or read more? (I started this one last night and it's quite addictive)


  1. Continuing the read. As you say addictive.

  2. Oh, yes, this one sounds so enticing! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  3. That paragraph didn't quite do it but I'd read more because it was the day of the crash.

  4. Sounds interesting and the opening offers a number of questions that I want answers to.

  5. I'd continue. This sounds like something I would like. I have to add this one to my wishlist.

  6. That reference to "The Day of the Crash" by itself would keep me reading to learn more.

  7. I would read it but probably not if I was just about to board a plane! :)
