My short story Armada is now available (for a week or so) on Bridgett Walther’s website, It can also be found on

I wrote this story to explore the feelings of transcendence and metamorphosis sometimes available to the lonely. I sympathise with the need of those who are strange or unusual or different to find acceptance and recognition – but I also know that isolation and loneliness can offer an intensity of perception unavailable when you are immersed in the crowd.

The stillness of being alone, wherever you are, can amplify your thoughts and offer you insights you would never otherwise achieve.

I hope you like the story. Feedback is welcome.
