All of a sudden, Martha was inside her car, struggling to get out. Struggling as the water seeped in. Struggling as the little gray sedan disappeared beneath the still waters of the dark summer lake.
In my novel, Evening of the Dragonfly, Farrah is struggling to understand and to remember what happened that summer night when the tragic death of her mother took place. She wants to remember, but she doesn't want to remember.
"F" is for Farrah Ferand. I have liked the name Farrah ever since I watched the old TV series, "Charlie's Angels" years ago. Farrah Fawcett, one of the stars, was beautiful, and her lovely blonde hair was unforgettable. Besides that, she and her friends solved mysteries. I had Farrah Fawcett in mind as I wrote my story. I could imagine her painting away in the studio she and Dirk built. I could imagine her trying to remember what happened that awful night Martha, her mother, died. I could also imagine her in the starring role as the romance with Dirk evolves.
In my book, Farrah has dreams she doesn't remember the next day. Some of the paintings she creates are about those dreams. "Farrah's Dream" is the title of today's painting.
