Just Write!

Before dashing away to the flight which would take her to a sunny, idyllic beach, Christine imparted a bit of advice.

  She encouraged me to reach for the brass ring.


and for God’s sake,


and proofread

and count your words!

The Welcome Committee

Checking clipboard and package, the delivery man presses the doorbell.

Bells chime, then loud, vicious barking erupts  followed by thundering feet.

Heart pounding, terrified, he braces for the beast within. 

Rottweiler? Pit bull?

The door opens.

Smiling lady and Chihuahua: sweet relief!

The Depths of Imagination

Bobby filled a pail with water.

Plunging a fishing line within its depths,

he waited,

proudly proclaiming he was fishing. 

Worried, friends feared for his sanity. 

His mother realized his imagination encompassed infinity.

Fathoms of vibrant fantasies to capture, investigate, and explore.
