Katherine is recovering from her operation, in her apartment. She has been ordered not to remove the bandages on her eyes for seven days, to allow the nerves to heal. The technology, which is being used to repair her sight, is beyond anything allowed outside the ship, and Katherine is impatient and curious to learn more, when she recovers. However her thoughts drift towards Alexand, and the cure promised by Katherine’s future self. She lies in her bed, imagining Alexand next to her. This story celebrates the Eight year Anniversary of Unbound Boxes on wordpress. Eight years ago I very nervously let go of Issue # 1: Alexand Merek, not knowing how she would be received. Thank you to everyone who has supported her and my other characters over these eight short years.

Happy Anniversary, Cheryl! Oops! I mean “Unbound Boxes and Limping Gods”
No small achievement, this is. The sign of a good writer is when they can tell a good story using words to develop an image.
But the sign of a Great writer, is one who can write a great story using so few words and develop not just an image but the soul of each character within. I would say you’ve done this all quite well.
Hi Mark, thank you, this means a lot to me, (and you know I think your artwork is incredibly awesome, don’t you 🙂 ) Cheryl.
Happy Eight! Many more to come. 🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂

Hi David, I always appreciate you stopping by and I’m very glad you enjoy these stories enough to join me for future issues. I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do with all the micro stories in regards to a book, as things are rather tumultuous at the moment, but thank you for your support, it means a great deal to me.
Tremendous writing and art, as always, Cheryl. Happy Anniversary!
