Throwback Thursday: BEYOND THE CLOUDS (June 2021)

Driving down the highway yesterday, a sudden surge of brake lights caught my attention. It wasn’t an accident or traffic which caused the sea of bright red to appear. It was hard rain, which seemed to come out of nowhere, catching all of us by surprise. The sky had a few clouds scattered throughout it,Continue reading “Throwback Thursday: BEYOND THE CLOUDS (June 2021)”

Throwback Thursday: FALLING LEAVES, WARM MEMORIES (A Snippet from a piece written in 2020)

By the time Patricia stepped outside into the brisk Virginia air, the leaves were already on fire. She smiled sheepishly at the memories swirling inside her mind and heart. She pulled the crocheted shawl, irregularly shaped from her first attempt at the craft, tighter around her shoulders.  Stepping off the wrap-around porch and following theContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: FALLING LEAVES, WARM MEMORIES (A Snippet from a piece written in 2020)”

Throwback Thursday: THE CHAIR (untitled story start circa 2018)

She passed the few houses between hers and the end of the street. Turning the corner, she looked up, noticing the beauty of the early morning sky and how the clouds sat in such a way to remind her of the coast.

Throwback Thursday: Story Start- “Adelaide” (October 2020)

She swung on the weathered tire swing, letting her stringy long, golden blond hair graze the dirt below. Her jeans she had cut off into makeshift shorts to try to beat the Texas heat, sat perfectly centered on the seat as she straightened out her legs.

Throwback Thursday: A First Paragraph (2019)

If I had known I was going to die today I would have eaten a more exciting breakfast than Cheerios. Okay, so it wasn’t even Cheerios, it was the generic brand. I mean, I even had to eat them with water because the milk had soured. If I had known that it was going toContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: A First Paragraph (2019)”

Throwback Thursday: CRAZY

I am not crazy. I can’t be. Would a crazy person be able to define the word itself? No, I am not crazy, but this . . . this defies all logic. No matter how hard I try, what is happening in this house is beyond explanation and that is exceedingly uncomfortable to me. NoteContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: CRAZY”
