Smiles and laughter realized again Deep in my soul, they still exist Despite the heartbreak and pain I remember what I dismissed. Wordsmith of stories and poems Decades spent writing them all - Conveying different emotions - One second up high, the next I fall. Did you happen to notice what was missing?… Continue reading Flawed Heart
It seems that the older we get, the harder we find it to take those little precious moments out of life and do things that truly bring us an immense amount of joy - pleasure, if you will. While I completely understand and know that we can't be a child again 24/7, I feel that… Continue reading What’s Your Pleasure?
I love the way this phone keeps us connected. I love the little device so much. Shiny and new and, oh so protected. Your thumbs brush over the screen While we sit here eating our lunch.

My car is currently buried in snow which probably… Continue reading Clones For Snowmageddon !

Now it’s your best friend’s (or close relative’s) turn to be stranded: what five objects would you send him/her off with? The Island Dear sweet friend of mine,… Continue reading The Island
I shall continue my letter as before, dear brother. I escaped my cottage and began to run as fast as my legs would carry me. It wasn't as I wanted but I managed to get away. It wasn't by my own ability but rather - the man showed mercy. He chased me through the… Continue reading Twilight Has Fallen (Part 2)
Dear Brother David, Had I known what I know now, I would have cancelled passage to this country and remained in London. I'm not even sure that is entirely truthful.
