Tuesday 17 January 2023 – Background of ON A FROSTY DAY

The setting for ON A FROSTY DAY is late December at a reservoir.

ON A FROSTY DAY presented itself on a cold Sunday afternoon. The unnamed, ungendered, and nearly nondescript central character could have been any one of the people in heavy coats trying to stay warm.

Several walked on a causeway from the shore to an island in the reservoir. I wondered how they might react if the causeway was suddenly blocked by a fence with a “KEEP OUT” sign. Would they try to get around it? Would they climb over it? The temperature was dropping so standing still was not a comfortable option.

What would they do?

The central character’s reaction will be available in the second episode of ON A FROSTY DAY series and Part Two on Tuesday 24 January 2023.
