Peter feels as though this trip to the palace by himself might be a defining moment in his later life.  He arrived at being the person he is when he was approximately thirty seven years old, a year after meeting his second wife, and has remained steadfastly that way ever since, with little disrupting his mild autumn.

From the short story Sleep in a Blue City by Helen Chandler (published in the stinging fly issue 27 volume 2, Spring 2014.)

  1. Hello there – that you so much for featuring my sentence, I’m very pleased. There is a typo in the quote however – ‘arrived at begin’, which should be ‘arrived at being.’ Apologies for being pedantic, someone else noticed it, not me!

    1. Hello Ms.Chandler! Thank you for taking the time to write and for pointing out my typo. You should not apologize for wanting words attributed to you to be words you have actually written! MY apologies for not having noticed it myself.

      …and thank you for your story. It is truly beautiful.

  2. Thank you! I’ve just noticed a typo in my comment above too…a bad day for spelling all round.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my story, much appreciated.
