The above music was played in the Stephen King movie "The Stand", and I'm not sure how many of you are Stephen King junkies like I am, but if you are not, then I will give you a brief explanation. The Stand, is a story about good and evil, and about how a deadly virus escapes from a lab and begins infecting people all over the United States, and the panic and survival that ensues. I won't tell the rest of the story because it's a good read and may be something to read now, while we are all still quarantined.
was probably one of the coldest winters I can remember, and the amount of snow that fell on our little lake community was amazing. My roommate, another female about my age, and myself had moved up to Vallecito in the spring of the preceding year. Spring through Autumn at Vallecito, CO are beautiful, but the winters can be brutal. This one in particular still stands out in my mind.
This is not a new scenario, but it is a sad one that has been happening over and again since the civil war. I remember the problems that began in the 1950's after it became official that segregation in schools was illegal and would stop. This problem carried on into the 1960s and beyond. A lot of people could not accept the idea of black children and white children attending the same schools. They were used to schools being all white.
Hello. Do you like my picture? I am thirteen years old in this picture, and I'm still looking good, don't you think? This is my story, a story of my life with my master as seen through my eyes, and why I love the person I call my master (or mother), and how we came to know each other and learn from each other.
I wanted him to touch me so much that I thought I was going to explode. He was older than me, quite a bit older, but he had a tight body, long hair, and eyes that looked right into your soul. Unfortunately he was living with another woman, and I was making it my life goal to get him for myself. After all, they weren't married or anything like that, so as far as I could see, he was out there for the taking.
I watched him from the side of the pool, my body submerged in the sparkling water, and my arms resting on the edges of the pool. He was tan and that simply highlighted the deep blue of his eyes and the blonde in his hair from the sun. He had an amazing six-pack and his legs were as sturdy as a girl could ask for. I could feel my body tremble as I watched him walk around the pool, checking to make sure nobody was under the water and needed help. He stopped, and crossed his arms over his chest and then looked right at me. I must have turned six shades of red when that happened and I felt like a stalker that had been caught. Quickly I pulled my arms forward and dove into the cool water until I got to the deep end where I went full under water. When I came up, he was standing right in front of me and my heart skipped a beat or two.
