My Parents Will Never Be Proud Of My Writing
I could win a Pulitzer Prize for blogging and my parents wouldn’t show up to the award ceremony. Oh, they don’t give the Pulitzer Prize for blogging? Shit. Ok. Well, it was a long shot anyway.
Christmas At The Cabin
We drove up the snowy, winding road towards the cozy A- frame cabin. My mind floods with memories of being a little girl again screaming, laughing, and playing in the snow. Mom would bound my siblings and I really tight we could scarcely breath. Layer our hands with mittens making sure not an inch of us was left uncovered. Dad would pick up the younger ones and put them front seat of the old blue truck. Us older ones clamored in the back. Off we were. First to haul in wood was, cut, loaded, and unloaded by the back door we would all clamor back in including mom, and go pick out the perfect tree.
Power Games in Personal Relationships
Recently I've been feeling like the world is a game of power. Not only in politics between the rich and the mighty, not only in traditional verticals at work, but also with our nearest and dearest – our romantic partners, friends and family members.
Miracle Babies-2022-Precious Things Vol. 2
What is most precious to you? We often overlook what is most precious to our hearts. External forces can block our minds and hearts As a species, we have many mental walls we erect, which keep the important stuff in the back of our minds. We must stay conscious of this and bring it to the forefront. When we experience a miracle, we must talk about it. Perhaps I'm a little late writing about this, but it must have needed time to come to a boil. Always, better late than never. The Twins are a miracle and deserve to be revered as such, My sassy little miracles.
A female, brindle, stray Pitbull dog was being fed by all the locals. Daily she walked the streets and made her rounds. Most of the locals had nick-named her Lucy. At night, she would sleep by the Snoball shop near the beach, under the awning. She was a very friendly and likable dog.
Driving home, the gloomy clouds rippled against the heaven’s skin like a rolling carriage, awaiting the long stars journey. I couldn’t wait to enter the home of the quiet and my cat “Meow-Ka,” named after my best friend Bianca, after dropping it off as a present. She hoped it would appease my heart’s jarring journey as she left for military training on their base, Fort Irwin, this past spring.
24 Days of Elfmas
Since moving to North America from the UK 11 years ago, I have had to learn to grow accustomed to the subtle little differences compared to life back home. I wouldn't say that I have ever had culture shock, but there are certain things that are different for example, fires on the beach to cook s’mores in the summer (illegal in UK (fires, not s’mores I mean)), S’mores, driving on the right side of the road and going around roundabouts backwards, paying to have a bank account, not having to pay to have a TV, etc etc
Too old ?
We drove up the snowy, winding road towards the cozy A-frame cabin. It was getting darker.I was excited. Winter had always been my favorite season. Other people didn't like winter because it was so cold and dark, but I specifically liked it because it was so cold and dark. I was different to most people. Cold weather was something I thrived in . It was summer and the heatwaves that I didn't like.
I didn’t see the drone arrive. It was whirring away when I opened the front door, visible over the driveway and capturing the attention of a curious cat. My laconic Lachlan leaned against the door jamb and said, “That package came by the drone.”
Live In The Moment
Chapter 1 I wake up to a notification on my I-Phone 20. I’m still holding on to the invitation to my 75th birthday, I must have drifted off to sleep while reading it. I do that a lot nowadays, can’t seem to stay up for more than just a few hours. There are days that I feel trapped in this old body and the young me is screaming to get out. Maybe take the wife to a movie or just a nice walk at the park. Given the chance, I’d take them on a nice vacation and show them all a good time. Nope, this is me now, have to wait for someone else to decide my day. Could be worse I guess, I spent all last week in a hospital bed. My arm is still bruised from all that poking they did.
Hardest Time of The Year for Many
Our family has always been close when my mother and father were still here. We were like any other family I would guess. Where you only see them on the holidays then don’t talk to them much for the rest of the year.
