My Island: Conclusion.

by | Jul 22, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Those of you expecting the conclusion to this sad, harrowing story will be either disappointed or relieved. There isn’t one.

It has been a difficult time for me, both researching and writing this story, and in my personal life. I lost the love of my life to religion and superstition after giving her everything. I met and spoke to people online because I am interested in them and their lives.

My friend in Cairo went to see Oppenheimer yesterday. She was so excited to tell me about it. During our conversation, she let it slip that she was sitting the foyer of her apartment block, waiting for the power cut to end so she could take the escalator to her flat on the sixteenth floor. I know she has breathing problems and is awaiting an operation.

This didn’t stop her joking about it, because that’s the type of person she is. She literally saved my life when Lina left to take up her old life. We’ll never meet but we talk about life every day. I have many friends around the world, thanks to my curiosity, social media and my interest in books.

I will continue writing and hope you will continue reading. There will be some changes to the site soon to make it easier to navigate and I’m excited about that.

My next challenge is to write a story based on a title she gave me and she will do the same with the one I’ve given her. Mine is ‘Almost There’ which seems somewhat appropriate.

Let’s see where it goes.

Oh, I won’t post this on Facebook so I know who will read it as a result of email.

Thank you 🙏🏻❤️
