Ephemeral, indeed, are the words we utter each day

Ephemeral - Being a series of short stories that allow the reader to look in on the day to day interactions of a fictional couple.

Flitting in tone from absurd to funny and at times even to poignant, the exchanges featured in each chapter are a fond look at the ephemeral nature of life, love and communication. They are also a very affectionate look on the part of the author at the love her characters have for one another.

Upon waking, the question was asked.

“What day is it?”

“It’s today.”



“I told you to wake me when it was tomorrow.”

“I’ve done so.”

“But you said it was today!”

“You said the same thing yesterday.”

“As did you. Are you arguing with me?”

“No, never.”

“Fine. Wake me when it’s tomorrow. Not before, not after, neither prior to nor posthumously.”

“As you wish: I’ve never done otherwise.”
