Once a mistake, always a regret with a heavy thought. Always dwelling upon it, doing the ever wondering of ‘Have I been forgiven’? The bible reads: “Once God has forgiven you, do not come forthright and ask for forgiveness among-st the same sin. For He does not hear you”. Man that’s tough one to swallow … More My biggest fan is not Jiminy Cricket.
Mark twin once quoted: The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. Ironically enough; today at church service there was very profound statement made. “When you know your WHY, your WHAT has more impact because you are walking in or towards your … More When you know the Why, you’ll know the What.
I moved furniture today. Only it was just one piece. Although that piece happened to be a 400 lb piano. Yep that’s right, I said a piano. It took myself; who keep in mind (I’m 5’6″ and weigh 130) I’m not exactly on the brut squad here. My husband, my ex-husband and one of his … More I never said I was a genius.
“Where are you?” A soft voice whispers. I answer to myself, I’m on a dock, its dusk, and there’s a fog floating over the water. There are trees in the distance that I can barely make out, partly because I am in control here, no one else. I choose not to focus on them. I … More “Where are you?”
Today, my sister will dress in black, she will fix her hair the way you liked it, and apply her make up flawlessly. She will, to us, effortlessly look beautiful for you, one last time. But for her, she wears a dress she will never want to wear again, nor forget when she wore it … More Angelos Passing
I already have a few sure, (one removed; but we’ll get to that later) but I don’t have the tattoo that I should, nor does any woman. And let me explain why I said ‘wear’. Most people, men included, get tattoos that mean something to them, now sure there’s that small percentage that did the “Oh … More The tattoo every woman should ‘wear’.
I had a feeling this assignment would be coming up and after all of the comments I left or posts I liked. There was only one that had me spinning a story in my head directly as I read it. Have you ever had the one story you read that you can’t concentrate because it is … More Commandment 9 “Love thy neighbor”
I stumbled across your words today. I cannot figure out why I was so frustrated on my feelings. Within the first admittance of your invasion, I thought it was me you were watching, I realized I wanted it to be me. Wait! What? Why? No! That feeling took me completely aback, where did that come from? What was it … More Violated
“Pedicure”? My girlfriend asks. “Sure”! I say. I would definitely love one! However the fear creeps up on me that I haven’t shaved my legs in about a week. Quick think of an escape! “Hey I almost forgot, I’m have to get to the dry-cleaners before it closes, I really need to pick up my … More The painful art of being a woman
I watched in awe as he moved behind the bar reaching from fridge to freezer, gliding his fingers across the crystal clear glass shelves looking for the perfect liquor for the cocktail at hand, choosing a glass to compliment the cocktail was like choosing the color of a car, it had to fit as if to … More The lost Art of bartending….
The day has come where it’s time for her to leave. You’ve bought her all she could possible need (and then some), you’ve packed all that you could fit into that car. At this point not even a cotton ball would fit. She’s ready; you’re not. Let her go; she’ll be okay. Throughout the years … More Let her go, she’ll be okay…..
A simple phrase yet when separated by a period gives two very different meanings. Writing space. Writing. Space. I write where I write. Normally at my lab top with a glass of wine, sometimes plugged into the local restaurants bar rail. At home at the kitchen table…no, not so much. Not my thing. Sitting cross-legged … More Writing space
“Aim small miss small” My goal as a writer. I recently read a post from a writer who said “I once met a man who aimed to receive one hundred rejections in a year. In the process, he received eight acceptances”. How can you go wrong when instead of shooting for the moon, you aim … More One hundred rejections…
“Have you ever felt you’ve become the worst version of yourself?” – Tom Hanks – You’ve got mail. That line sticks out to me like a bad paper-cut hit with hand sanitizer. Once we suddenly become that selfish, blind person we can’t stand to see in someone else, we can’t take it back. Her back, … More The Mirror.
I watched as she stood there, this beautiful, young woman. Her long straight blonde hair gently swaying with the evening breeze, just standing there in her black pants and petticoat, with her purse clutched in her hands down in front of her body…I stood in awe. Where did this beautiful creature come from? She was … More My un-wanted un-forgetable memory…
