Friday Fictioneers: Remember, Reconnect (2015.01.30)

Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for the prompt, and Ted Strutz for the photo.

This is not my best work, I admit.  But I do have a past.  I am human. …Stop looking at me like that…

My father, I barely knew.  He’d divorced and remarried before my first memories had formed.  But I remember that one time we visited a small seasonal dwelling.

The place had no power.  A generator was used for pumping water, in case anyone used the bathroom.  The place did, oddly have electrical outlets despite being disconnected from the world.  I don’t remember sleeping there.

I fell out of contact with Dad some years ago.  Part of aging in “nowheresville.”  Electronic outlets and emotional switches, I miss life.  I want to remember.  I want to reconnect.  But do I miss him?
