A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: Love is alive and well.

Hi guys, it's Britt. 
Love is alive and well on the streets of this city. Doesn't it feel good to be reminded of that? Especially when things get, um...tough.

 Thanks to, artist, Gregory Allan Elliott, who I suspect is responsible for some of this "love graffiti." Read my previous post about him here.

Have an amorous weekend, story-makers.
See you back here on Monday.


  1. I'm back for me bi- to tri-monthly perusal of tire swing stories. I like visiting intermittently because that gives me a real sense of evolution, like seeing a child once a year -- you really notice the growth.

    These stories are solid, B-ster. They're really becoming polished little gems, and i just this second had the thought that you should pull them all into a manuscript and shop them around. For one thing, nobody seems to be doing the microstory thing these days (or maybe (likely) i'm just out of it). For another, it's the perfect bathroom read, for one, and gawd knows that's an undertapped market!

  2. Wowie zowie, Greg. Thanks for the support! I do have a plan to compile some of these into a manuscript of sorts. I made a little goal to get to 200 posts and then start thinking about that. I'm at 155 at present, so I've got a bit of time.
