My Grand

I got my spontaneity from my grandmother. Every visit and every call, she inspired me. Her encouragement and her excitement in all I shared. She was my biggest fan. My picture drawings and photos plastered her refrigerator and walls. She was my role model. I read her journal entries, book referrals, and basked in her memories and photos. With her, it was not just tea parties and dolls, as...

Halloween at the Chateau Portal B&B

It was Halloween and Sarah had a couple hours before her guests would arrive for the party she was hosting. Her parents had approved this one last party in the courtyard outside their residence. That included the common areas of the first floor of the Chateau with the half bath restroom and kitchen before the house opened officially as a Bed and Breakfast. There was a strict rule not to...

Truth or Dare

Chloe was in a state of ennui without solace. Alas, she was part of the world-wide pandemic advised to isolate. Having a very acquiescent nature, she washed thoroughly and masked up in public and scoured the internet in search of relief. Finding a bizarre poem of living beyond normality, she felt a spark for adventure and maybe her own game of truth or dare. Surely she knew her living spaces...

Enemies and Allies

Medieval times or modern times, knight or soldier, one's word must be believable, and one's actions must follow. It can define you as an enemy or an ally, a friend or a foe. Time and modernity has not changed that measurement of trust. Man or woman, boy or girl, trust can be a treasure. Honor is a gift to yourself. The abandonment of an oath results in loss to both parties. First felt...

It was a dark and stormy night, in a metropolis before UBER, GRAB, and iPhones. She had been with friends but was now alone, although with an umbrella, no taxi in sight. He didn't mind the rain, but had taken temporary shelter off the street. She noticed him marooned under a shop cover as she strolled by. He noticed her walking alone and was still a believer in chivalry. She was not too...

Fire & Ice - Chapter 3

Jenna was intrigued by Ray's homework for her after their first official life coach session. Although she was vaguely familiar with what she knew to be a sensory deprivation tank, she had to agree with Ray, that a 'float tank' was a better marketing name for it. The main reason she knew about those tanks was a fiction novel she had read years back, The Door to December, or something like...

She loves her Daddy. He gave her all he could for her to stand on her own. She retains all he taught her, all the memories along the way, and the confidence that she built under his tender care. She travels many paths but it is at bridges that she remembers him the most. Chasms of various heights always scare her. Bridges may not be perfectly safe. "Cross with care, don't look down, and...

Wandering Jack - The Curse

I am here to tell my own story. It's not yet over and I will have to go backwards before going forwards in order for you to understand my circumstances. I don't much like the word damned, as it has a history of being so final. I resist that I am damned, although I fully accept that I am cursed. You see, I made some bad decisions. I am sure there is not anyone out there that has not. So, I...

I've traveled many miles before reaching you. Fallen from vast heights, down waterfalls, rivers and through streams. My pollution is minimal as I have always kept moving. Now, I want to be a lake, never to leave you. A sanctuary you are to me. I feel safe, I feel clean, I feel fresh each day. My past is behind me. I have come a long way to be with you. As a lake, we must yet flow a little...

Chip, if you were commenting on my latest post, that is a picture of my back yard and the Shenandoah River, North Fork. Not big or mighty, but so nice anyway. Thank you for commenting dear friend.
