SS # 9 "Volcano" by Yvonne Weekes is about that a woman who has more than grown tired of being covered in the ash but doesn't do anything about it but watch her closest friends leave her standing in the shadow of the volcano. Nature's way causes too much change but yet not enough.




SS#10. " The Pain Tree" is a story of going back to the homeland to do a child's perceived duty to care for the lone remaining parent. Lorraine is sent away to school away from her parents. On her return as a much older adult she is struck by how it is the past servant Larissa occupies her memory. As readers we learn how those in the big house do not possess the Earth. Writer Olive Senior paints such a good scene of coming to the truth what as children we could never know.



Again these are from Stories from Blue Latitudes

"The Pain Tree" sounds really interesting. I'm really going to have to find this anthology ...
