Inside the Mind of Isadora

Crispina Creative Challenge – Vintage Airplane Show


Her dad had spoken of the war many times. 

It always made him sad.

Still, he loved to tell those war stories despite the pain.

“We were good soldiers,” he’d say.

“We did our best but a lot of boys died trying.”

“Dad, are you enjoying the vintage airplane show?”

“Oh yes, dear, I am”.

I could see a tear start to fall.

 Perhaps, this wasn’t the best outing today.

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  2. I like this. I remember how many times my father told his stories. And in the end he wrote them. His memoirs, he called them. They lived a different life to us. Never can we understand what they went through, no matter which war it was
