You may remember that Nancy McBride was the June winner with her second Travel Story entry Babushka the Beautiful.
Here is Nancy's travel highlight:
Her lover picked us up in a limousine. Openly, they conferred, “Where can we be SEEN?”
At the right restaurant, shown to the right table, as hoped, we were “SEEN” by the elite of Melbourne. “You’re Coral’s American friend? How IS she?”
Without Coral, a famous former fashion model, these wanna-bes were nothing. Bored, Coral travelled the world, skiing, and now lived in my working-class hometown.
She was wearing a floor length mink coat—a last vestige—when I met her at a local pancake house. She told me to tell them all she was studying to be a nurse.
Nancy’s life, like most of ours, has had its surprises and lessons, its traumas and hilarious consequences. Along her meanderings she realized she was free to just be, to observe life around her, and being of an artistic nature, to express it as wont in word or art. (QUIRKY R US ARTWORK)
