Dirk's Family - An Introduction

An introduction to Dirk's Team and Family - The Dirty Dozen

Dirk was in his bunk listening to his dark country mix when Devin came in and smacked his boot hanging off the bed and said, "The boss wants you." He took out his earbuds and sprang out of the bunk and dropped to the floor and pumped out 50 pushups, stood up and then slapped Devin in the shoulder. "Any idea why the boss wants me?" "No, I'm just the messenger dude. He looks bored as usual and...Read On

The Haunted Asylum

College Roommates Halloween surprise to never forget

Katy was always bored. She came from a wealthy family with a lawyer father who had given her everything. Spoiled was an understatement.  She had been to every amusement park and had done every roller coaster and thrill ride in the country. She claimed there was nothing she had not tried that was exciting, including bungee jumps and zip lines across canyons and rivers. She had even...Read On

Dirk's Destiny

A dream with awakening realization.

Dirk was born ambitious, although to common folk. He grew up in the '50s but the calendar shows different. In adulthood he found himself a professional. One day he dreamed he gave up all to be a lone wolf; the educated said he did not exist. He needed no moon in which to howl, no pack in which to alpha-batize. He wandered where he wished; he poked where his curiosity took him.

Coma

Alone in the dark

Ghost

A Halloween photo prompt

It's an old house of history and antiques with a Jane Austin and Bram Stoker feel to it. A bed and breakfast, I could not pass up. It's like a movie in black and white, aged like a fine wine, the creaking floors and the whistling wind are an ambiance to appreciate. I never imagined I would be here alone, nor for a robbery I am not hurt and they are long gone. I am under a sheet looking much...Read On

Tightrope

on a tightrope with unseen safety net of love below

I tried to tell her to be cautious, to understand it's a dangerous world out there. And with those words to ponder, I let her go. And she flew, cllimbed, and explored, always pushing her limits, on the tightrope, of life. What she and the rest of you can't see, is I am here for her should she fall, should she need a safety net, loving arms extended, just off camera, ready.  ...Read On

Beyond Normal Living

Living Life Beyond Normal Living

My heart beats for a bright-eyed maiden. by loving example she teaches me the art of living. I will share a glimpse of her view, an experience she shares of how to exist beyond normal living: “While on a morning walk in nature, I saw the beautiful things I love: the birds, the flowers, and all God’s gifts to us. Their beauty my eyes sought out and my soul cherished. I was full, I thought,...Read On
