High above an abandon quarry, under a starlit night, stood Mickey. His back was faced away from the chasm as he stared down the center of Clyde's revolver. Among dry desert dirt, on her hands and knees, crying, is the love of his life. Sand and tears caked one side of her face and the man who stood above her with a gun pointed at the back of her head was Clyde's right-hand man, Glen. A cloud covered the moon leaving Mickey in a dark shadow. Clyde pulled the trigger and the bullet tore through Mickey's skull, tossing his head back and lifting his feet off the ground and into the chasm.

What doesn't make sense? Everything. All these years gone by and still the same issue. How does one recognize real love? I'm not without some bit of understanding. Yes, I know that love is more than an emotion. I know love is action and sticking through the worst of times and not just enjoying the ride...er relationship. But I'm sick. I really mean it. My stomach gets all turned upside down even thinking about it.
Why can't love be like a great meal? I love shrimp cocktail, Caeser salad, T-bone steak or Prime rib. And oh, let's consider a nice chocolate mousse. But I can't find it made... Read More
“Creativity seems to emerge from multiple experiences, coupled with a well-supported development of personal resources, including a sense of freedom to venture beyond the known.”~Loris Malaguzzi
Creativity is valuable and has been studied over the years. It’s the phenomenon of making novel associations and creating something new and original.Creativity has been present in several disciplines that include science, mathematics, education, philosophy, psychology, sociology and technology. Most people associate creativity with the fields of art and literature.
Ludwig Lewisohn (1882-1955)... Read More
Why Don’t We Write?
What is it that prevents us from writing the very words that cloud our minds in the moment of inspiration?
Is the fear that what we have to say may seem relevant and hold purpose to ourselves but not others?
Is it that we fear that what we feel so passionately about may evidently fall upon deaf ears?
Before we allow ourselves to dream bigger than any physical wall which could separate us from the things we most desire, too often do we chain ourselves down before we can even leave the grounds of our true potential.
In our hearts we understand... Read More
Raw, naked and intense. That's the way I awoke. I couldn't quite remember what caused such powerful emotions. But I was definitely wanting to feel more of them. Like a distant memory, my thoughts left me and soon I was remembering what was next.
All about warm. It took me, not for granted but just took hold of me and pounded against me, really warm and steamy water beating against my face, my body, which felt so amazing. Why ever leave?
I knew what was next. Dry off and begin the lotion and oils. What scent reminded me of the experience I wanted to know today?
I found one....mmm...or... Read More
Oh what a tedious, mind-numbing day of endless thoughts. Should I? Should I not? Would I, if I were 20 years younger or would I not?
But does it really matter much anyway? No matter the number of steps forward I take to connect, I find myself wanting to step back, almost as if never moving forward at all. But am I not supposed to keep hope alive?
Tick tock. The clock moves on.
And here I am no different than I was a moment ago...or was it 10 years ago? I really can't seem to tell much difference.
Sometimes time moves. Sometimes I'm not quite sure. I think the light... Read More
It's not that it takes over my life, but the bulk of my social life is by way of conversing on Facebook. (Yes, its pathetic I know!) Even through that forum somehow the conversation falls apart. Let me just say that words on a computer screen that are typed by anyone tends to be taken out of content sooner or later. Either one word or a statement can ruin a chat and so the time it took to build something solid is destroyed. The person on the other end quickly becomes judgmental and angry.
Then you have to explain yourself what you meant because the other person doesn't understand nor... Read More
