Let’s Talk Coffee Podcast Trailer/Intro

This short podcast is the trailer/intro for my newest series of podcast episodes coming soon. I’m posting it today as an experiment to make sure all parts of my theme are cooperating with me on this venture. It will be about another week before I start publishing regular episodes, but I’ll be sure and let you know so that you can listen from here or from other major podcast venues.

PLEASE HELP:  I’ve set a picture for this post for now, but I’m having trouble deciding which picture to use for my cover art for the podcast when it appears on other venues.  Would you be so kind as to drop down to the “Comment” section and let me know which of the pictures you think would be best. You can choose from the one I’ve set as the temporary image above, or any one of these others I’ve inserted below this paragraph. Thanks a lot for your help.

Friday Fictioneers – 6/14/13 — On Stage

Cold sunlight glares through the high windows onto the scarred, wooden stage as I walk its length slowly. My old friend the upright just sits there – battered – bruised – silent.  No more music. A catch-all now for props from long-abandoned comic skits and love scenes.

Stark shadows punctuate the old, stained backdrop.

My footsteps once brought standing-room only audiences to their feet. Now, they echo across the emptiness.

Condemned,” the billboard reads!  They tear it down tomorrow.  

One sob escapes.

I inhale the dust and wonder: does it come from the room … or from my memories?
