Well, here I go again. All alone except for this suitcase of mine. I’m headed for a new place with new people. Not so bad considering it’s 1944. Lots of guys are in my shoes. We’re in the middle of World War II. Still not so bad. I’m a fireman in the Army Air Corps whatever they’re calling themselves these days. Once again, not bad at all. But I was born in 1963. There’s the bad part.
I was not born with the name Ray Lafayette, but that’s what they call me. I didn’t have kids or smoke a pipe. Hell, I didn’t even like coffee. I do now.
I was born into a different life than this, one with a lot of attachments. Now I carry my life in one bag. One really important bag.
In this time, people call me pal or buddy or sir, good lord they call me sir all the time.
I have friends in this time, and they are the best but do they know me like they think they do? Simply put, NO! Would they die for me? Every bit as much as I would die for them.
To say these folks are tough or strong is an understatement. Superhumans? I don’t think so. They were ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. I didn’t have heroes before this. I didn’t understand them until now.
Since this event has started, I have experienced many things I can’t explain. There is only one other person who has any knowledge of my situation, and I can’t find him. The last words from him were vos non unum, you are not alone.
There was a time I missed all the things that made my life easier as I thought. Here I have no cell phone, no internet, no rock music, no almost anything. As bad as that sounds, I’m not sure if I want to leave here.

Meet the author:
Thomas William Lowrie is a WWII writer and author who has published two military novels, He Was and Out of Time.
He has lived outside of Las Vegas most of his life, but his best memories are of the days fishing in South Texas. Summer vacations were the best. That is also where he found his best friend and wife, Tina. He could not have done any of this without her. Of course, Ray pecking at his brain for years had something to do with it too.
How do you work through self-doubts and fear? Railroad through them and pick up the pieces later.
What scares you the most? Not being loved.
What makes you happiest? Simplifying my life.
Why do you write? At first it was Ray telling me to but now I write to share the things I have learned with others.
Have you always enjoyed writing? No, I was in my upper forties before I even thought about it. I didn’t think I could do it.
What motivates you to write? Thoughts get stuck in my head and won’t go away until I write them down.
Is there anyone you’d like to acknowledge and thank for their support? Yes, My partner in silliness, Tina Lowrie

When you are not writing, how do you like to relax? Movie night at home.
What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel? The feeling that they were part of another time. Maybe another part of the world. Maybe anything their imagination wants to be.
