Monument.  (c) Pamela Schloesser Canepa, 2018

“And here, ladies and gents, is a monument to bygone transportation and musical devices.  It is simply called, ‘Round.’

Little Tommy gazed in awe, imagining a time when humans did not know how to use air currents to get them moving.  When the tour guide’s head was turned, he spun one of the wheels.  Sure enough, it moved around.  He blew on it to make it continue.

“Wrong,”  Grandpa whispered loudly.  “There were pedals on each side you’d move with your legs.  So you’d get exercise.  No atrophy problem.”

What’s that?  Tommy wondered, pushing the button on his hover-cart.

I am a writer who also teaches reading and writing, currently. In 2016, I self-published an e-book and its sequel, and I am learning the art of self-promotion. I published a full-length time travel novel as of 6/16/17 and its sequel in the summer of 2018. Life is a trip, and writing is the best escape for me!
