Diary of a Hopeful Starving Student

This is a place for hope.

I am delightful company!
Once upon a time this writer was a reporter/photographer and columnist for a large weekly newspaper in New York City, worked at the Center for Publishing at N.Y.U., worked at Kirkus for one whirlwind semester and eventually was an editor at Scholastic. After two very eventful years on cable television in New York City, this writer was voted off the island. Today this writer is a student and soon-to-be published author (all fingers and toes are crossed) living in reduced circumstances. She is ever hopeful and even though her stomach may rumble from time to time, she is usually somewhat reasonably well fed. Most importantly this writer is a recovering or former New Yorker, (recovering seems more apt), who is quite happily transplanted elsewhere. She blooms where she is planted. ************************ You can contact me at diaryofahopefulstarvingstudent@ gmail.com

Night falls, leaving Hope, Matthew and Isaiah in semi-darkness in the hallway, only lit with the moon's glow through the windows. 

Matthew and Hope try to find their way in the hallway--and in the moment.  With only glimmers of light before them they move forward.

Before Matthew turns on the wall switch he pauses and takes one last look at Hope.  All the feelings he had for Hope years ago come rushing back at him.

Matthew starts to reach for Hope's hand.

Then from the hall below someone else reaches for the switch, leaving them caught in the light of the enormous chandelier above the grand staircase.

And Matthew's fight with the moonlight ends.
