Recently, I visited Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, and was fascinated by the older Victorian-style cottages facing the ocean. Time and circumstances have been kinder to some than others. I wondered about the secrets that linger behind and between the walls, and the countless stories they've witnessed over the years. This inspired me to begin writing a short story fiction series.

Hi John. These were smaller cottages built quite close to each other. Porches were immaculately swept, with rocking chairs and other seating, but not a soul was to be seen anywhere. Thanks for commenting. The death inspiration surprises me too.
Hello, dear Faith...
I just loved your answer and can relate to your fascination with the Victorian images and lifestyle lived by our grandparents. I hope that the health issues you mentioned are not serous. Sending loving, healing hugs your way.
I am fine, dear Genna, and thank you. Sadly, I never knew my grandmother for she died when my mother was young. My mother grew up on Lake Eerie and my dad in MA. But I grew up in the south due to my dad being stationed down here. Hugs
I loved your story about the Woodpecker...inspirations come from surprising places. Thanks for that fascinating answer. :-)
