I sigh with contentment. My students’ writing is coming along. I look up from correcting papers where I sit in my Nana’s recliner, and there, across from me, is pure golden fire on the wall.
Below the tendrils of the golden fire sit two pictures. One, a photograph of my daughter. The other, a picture my Papa had, that I had given him… showing our glorious planet in gold foil.
There on the shelf, against the wall, my world is bathed in fiery gold. I reach out to touch its warmth, its brilliance…
