Shoes of the Past

Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Carolyn walked through the dark room guided by sunbeams filtering through dirty skylights.   The jagged splotches of illumination somewhat resembled a checkerboard from hell.  She stopped, noticing a small wooden platform near several large panoramas of early American history.  The platform shone a bit more than the rest of the area and on top sat a pair of empty clod hoppers, farmer’s boots.  They almost seemed in place here in the museum with this exhibit – almost.

Carolyn crept over to the pair and examined them.  Nestled down inside each boot were the remains of a foot.  She drew the berretta.


Thanks for reading another vignette from Carolyn’s story.  I have begun the longer version of the story and began by posting part one last night on my blog.  I hope to see you there.  As a side note – you have no idea how close  I came to calling this “Soles of the Past” 🙂





Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun!

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
