Hey Phil! Don't give the game away. This story moved me to tears. But, then, I cry during every episode of 'The Simpsons' so take no notice; I'm just a dumb brunette.
My condolencies, incidentally, for your recent bereavements. Losing family hits one pretty hard. We just have to keep on keeping on. Kindest thoughts - Tink

I'll chime since I read this story late one night after receiving the signed collection from Mr. B - a most recent publication! I too found the theme tremendously human and fragile. I was searching for the title as it is a 2010 release, but Phil's contextual clue did assist somewhat. Simply stated, a poignant, beautiful tale, "The Visit."

No one captures such glimpses of life as does Mr. Bradbury!

I'll toss a pebble into the pond if you wish!?

----------
Phil, "Peace" to those closest and sharing memories, fond and dear!

Thanks, tink and fjp. Sorry if I gave the game away with the clue, but if anyone was in the mood to cheat they could easily have Googled the quote and found the entire story online: it was published in The Times last year, and remains online.

For the benefit of those who don't know this terrific little story, read and enjoy:

Wow, Phil! That's exactly where I first read this story, and must confess I didn't realise it was on online. Well done, chaps!

So, it's over to you fjp.

Happy Halloween Tree to All!

I believe this might come from "I Sing The Body Electric," but just can't place the quote to a story yet. Thanks for the clue! Please let us know, fjp451.

A close proximity! Here a Treat: Maybe Braling II could assist if he is out there looking into through autumn's frost touched windows!

"She stood in the doorway behind him. She was dressed in a feather-soft green gown. On her feet were woven gold-twine sandals. Her hair was bright about her throat and her eyes were blue and clear."
