A stranger walking through a small park somewhere at some time just finished eating a pear and tosses the core into a small vacant lot covered in leaves and carries on his way not thinking of the core he just tossed. Days go by and soon the seasons change from summer to fall, fall to winter, winter to spring and spring back to summer as we stroll through the small park once again enjoying the warm summer breeze. A little girl chases her ball down the path as a mother rests on the park bench to care for her child not knowing about the miracle happening behind her. It was the miracle of life.
Pickers Point Accident
Snow has been falling all day with the temperature dropping a degree every couple of hours making everything dangerously slippery while the plows and sanders have been out all day barely able to stay ahead of the falling snow. Danny had just gotten off a long shift at the factory and was looking forward to a warm meal and a warm bed when his phone rang and an unknown number appeared on the screen,
Experience or Not
Applying for a job or position at some business can be very frustrating for a person new into the field or someone just finishing high school or college. One of the first things that you see is, “How much experience do you have?” or you must have a certain number of years of experience. No wonder there are so many companies still looking for employees, they want the perfect one, someone that will jump right in and know exactly what to do and don’t need to be told. Hello, not everyone is trained or has the experience but they are willing to learn. Companies do not want to train or give anyone a chance, they want you to come in, do the job right and go home.
Sebastian stepped out through the companies front doors and onto the sidewalk just as the sun was setting over the mountains to the west as it gave off a prism of amazing colors. Mesmerized by the beauty Sebastian just stared at the hue of colors till they faded into darkness when out of the corner of his eyes he had seen a flash of green light shoot from the mountains into the clear night sky. Intrigued by what he had just seen he ran to his car in the parking lot and sped off towards the distant mountains as fast as his little car could go.
The Apple Tree
It was a warm sunny day as Amber ran up to her parents all excited for the day they had planned to visit her grandparent's farm down by the coast. As they were driving along her mother told her that her parents had just recently got some new cattle and there was a big old bull amongst them and she had to watch where she was going when she was around the animals. Amber's cousin Jenny was meeting them at the farm so the girls wouldn't be bored while their parents were busy branding the cattle. As the truck turned off the main road onto a long dusty driveway Amber noticed the big bull out in the pasture running around and further down the driveway she noticed Jenny sitting on the fence.
Family and Friends
I don't know if I would call this a story. It's about a person that I know that has been through a great ordeal in the past while and in the recovery process is finding out who the true friends and family really are. They are known as the black sheep of the family, shunned by others for who they are or are not, they are there to help when needed but when you require help they are nowhere to be seen.
Drama off the Coast
The sky was clear with only a couple of clouds floating by with the slight breeze as the lilacs swayed next to the path that headed down to the wharf where Harold had his old putt-putt tied up. The commercial cod fishery had begun and the bay was beginning to fill with eager fisher-people ready to put their lines in the water. This is the time of year at the beginning of the summer when all the small communities along the coasts of Newfoundland look forward too, the few weekends they can get out and catch their cod for the winter. Little Mikey and his twin sister Mary came running up behind their uncle as he reached the little boat bobbing in the water. “Do you have everything that you need kids?” Harold asked as he helped them into the putt-putt. “Yes uncle,” Mary replied. “We have a rods, bait, lunch and most importantly we have our life jackets.” The little girl continued as Mikey clambered his way up to his favorite spot at the bow of the put. Once they were settled Harold started up the small boat and they made their way out to the fishing grounds with the putt-putt echoing in the background.
The Package Amber was sitting at her desk in the back of the classroom staring out the window dreaming of the upcoming summer just lazing around doing nothing. “Amber, Amber! Are you paying attention or are you just day-dreaming again?” The teacher shouted at her and Amber was brought back to reality, “Yes mam I was paying attention.” she replied. “You were explaining to us about the upcoming exams and what we need to prepare for them.” The teacher glared at here and then continued on with explaining what had to be done. At the end of the day she received a text from her mother to pick up a package at a certain address and when she looked at it she didn’t know it.
