Fleur Lind has sent in a short story that was inspired by a Daily News story, about Warwick's abandoned shopping trolleys. She describes the life of a shopping trolley and how each day passes by in its life. The things it has to go through and how it assists us in our shopping experience. The difficulties and joyous moments in their life.
Fleur was born in and raised in the North Island of New Zealand, and now resides in South Canterbury in the South Island, where she, her husband, two children and cat enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of being ‘Mainlanders'.
She alongside Lloyd Hopkins have put out a creative effort and written a book as well, known as ‘A Timely Dream’. The book is a fantasy, science fiction. A character ‘Felicity’ is a Senior Caregiver in an elite Rest Home. When she has her curiosity aroused by a poster placed the wrong way round in a window across the valley from her work place, she organizes an investigation. Little does she know that what she finds will change time itself, both for the elderly residents in her care, and those she knows and loves. In a story that breaks down the boundaries of time, the future is threatened by jealousy and greed, the present is fuelled by passion and love while the past is eased by the healing powers of memories finally understood.
