5 minute prompt: Write about an image

They can be ethereal.

They can be concrete.

Images can be overblown.

Images are sometimes what remain in our vision after we close our eyes.

My favorite image is of the lake form the boardwalk at Palisades. What the houses behind represent (family, time, history, access, money) and watching the lake. The image of storms coming in over the lake is simultaneously awesome and terrifying.

Images are indelible.

Images are fleeting.

Images are what remain of a person after they’ve gone.
