Chapter One: Josephine
A coat of paint hid burn marks.
Makeup hid frown lines.
The light of noon hid terrible moon lit shadows.
Josephine had to move on.
On this episode of Mindframe, we get to chapter one, the first of the chapters about Josephine. She is a widow, grieving the loss of her husband to a horrible fire in the hotel they owned. For the past year, she has been trying to rebuild—her life, the hotel, her psyche—with only the company of her two trusty dogs and Teddy, the contractor. As she readies herself for another lonely winter alone on the mountain, she isn’t certain she can take another season living among the ghosts in the hotel she simply calls The Old Dame.
