In the distance, he could hear the flat, modulating whine of tires as countless travelers drove down the interstate highway. The noise was soothing and hypnotic. He allowed himself a small smirk as he thought of the drivers speeding by his spot, oblivious to the wonderful truth he was about to discover. The wind whispered its secrets to the dead corn, blowing the new snow in ghostly waves over the furrows, valleys and scrub left behind from the year's harvest. The insulating blanket of white muffled the night sounds, but he knew this is where his focus must lie.
He listened. Below the wind he heard the soft accumulation of snow on his wet windshield. Miniature avalanches slid across his view as they melted against the car's quickly dissipating internal heat. He listened. He heard his breathing, slow and deep and deliberate. He listened. He heard his own heartbeat pulsing in his ears.
He listened. Quieter than the snowflakes and his own heartache he began to hear what had brought him here. He began to hear the voices.

Thanks to the few followers who entered my off-season contest! Four of you took the time to go on my little trivia hunt, and since the number of entries is so few I would feel bad about choosing just one winner....so here's how it is going to work:
Each of the entrants will receive an email in order of their entry. You will then get to choose your prize from the above picture. The next person will get to choose from the remaining items and so on.
I will post the final results as soon as the prizes have been divvied up.
Thanks so much for following and for taking the time to dig thru my archives! I really appreciate it!
