Buried Treasure

A moonlight dig...

He stood in a large hole, perhaps four feet deep and five or six in diameter. The digging was strenuous, the ground comprised of gravel and sand. With each thrust, the shovel stopped dead, sending a jolt through his arms, his shoulders, his back. Every few minutes, he dropped to his hands and knees to dig by hand. With his fingers, he unearthed heavy rocks, straining to wrestle them from the...Read On


Accident or evil plan?

Bing goes the yard arm

The day dawned bright and clear with a nice steady breeze.

Slow she walks

Malama (Vuto_MSK) challenged me to a Micro-fiction challenge. So I dedicate this to you.

Slow she walks, with her eyes closed, into the darkness. She doesn't need eyes to see, ears to hear or senses to sense, what dangers lie ahead.

She's a fragile juggernaut, but nothing can stop her. Like a fly attracted to...Read On

For the first forty-five minutes we were led by our choreographer in an exercise set to get us into shape for a show that...Read On
