Solving a puzzle

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows the silhouette of a woman walking her bicycle at sunset (or possibly sunrise) and her dog is walking ahead of her.


She was confused when she opened the letter addressed to her recently deceased father and what she found inside was something she needed to think about and make a decision. With both her parents gone and no siblings, it fell to her to take a decision regarding the news in the letter. She took her dog Rory and went for a long bike ride.

Walking home with her bike, Andy was pleasantly tired. It was true that the flat tire had added to her exercise minutes but she got to enjoy the beautiful sunset with Rory beside her. Her time alone had helped her to think of a solution to the riddle of the letter.

Her father apparently had been estranged from his own siblings, which he had never mentioned. Now one of his brother had written to him to ask for a reconciliation. Andy thought that since she was all alone in the world, she’d reach out to her uncle and perhaps they will mend the broken bridges.
