Needs Are Essential — Wants Can Be A Liability
Listening to Selma complaining to Nora as I walk slowly behind them around the trail in the neighborhood. “I don’t understand. How do you manage to make the right decisions most of your life?” Selma complained.
Can Humans Go Into Safe Mode
In the long express line in the supermarket, listening to two females talking. The taller female was in front of a shorter one, who was in front of me surfing on her phone. She clutched a small shopping basket with green grapes, broccoli, and a tray of eggs in her left hand.
Find Your Sunlight/Success
De’ Anna approached, a sad look spread across her face like a cloud covering the Sun, making it darker. “Hi, Mom,” she greeted Sonra, hugged her, walked to the bay window near the sofa, and turned the large green flowerpot, with Red Laceleaf Anthurium flowers on the small table in the center, to the right.

“You want nothing to do with me,” Erica Sanders said as she approached the table in Envie Moi. An upscale French restaurant where she often dines. “Yet, you are here at my favorite place to eat and also at my table,” she said to Sanya, Yvette, and Toya.
He Could Have Saved Her Life!
Watching Dateline on NBC, a man named Roger* murdered his wife Anna* because she was filing for divorce after many years of marriage. A divorce would reveal his theft from his children’s trust fund. They were separated. Her blood was plastered all over her house. Her body wasn’t found. It took the police almost four years before he was charged. What increased my anger was one neighbor told the reporter that he heard a blood-curdling scream the night she went missing.
Amalie Cobb was invited to give a speech to the graduating class of 2022 at her former high school. She decided to meet them before graduation because it's been more than thirty years, and she was curious. The auditorium was packed with eager young minds awaiting her.
