“Your call is very important to us. Please stay on the line and one of our technicians will be with you shortly.” Maveth drew a deep breath, blowing his cheeks up like a balloon. He held it a moment before letting it out slowly. This was taking forever. He had work to do and this tech issue had set him back by half a day.
Sitting in the darkened viewing room, Delphine felt as close to the peace she used to feel before the passing of her Mémé a year ago. The fish swam through the iridescent blue that reminded her of her grandmother’s eyes, with a grace she envied. Delphine herself had two left feet and was all thumbs.

The Soundtrack of Our Lives
Music plays a fairly major role in most of our lives, whether we realise it or not. Apparently, scientists have ranked the sense of hearing last in terms of the senses abilities to recall memories. And yet when so many of us reminisce about days gone by, we attach songs, indeed even entire soundtracks to periods of our lives.

After the happy warbling of bird, she began to recognise the sounds of wind through trees, distant voices, hammering, children playing and the soft ringing of a chime.
My Soul Mate Has Four Legs
The last few years have been pretty tumultuous for a lot of people, for a lot of different reasons. Between a Pandemic impacting heavily on both my home life and professional life, a relationship breakdown and life in general doing what life does, it has been a busy and stressful chapter of my life. I know I’m not alone in this, and even though that is comforting to know I’m not the only one struggling at times like these, it can still feel like a very lonely experience especially when we are separated from the people we love through no choice of our own. Simple things we might have coped with before become compounded and feel insurmountable.
