A Song of the Stars
A single brown leaf was swept up as a soft breeze weaved through the branches. The sun had set much earlier than usual; it would soon be time to leave.
The Night Hunter
The journey over the ridge to the forest was a peaceful but long journey. The sun was setting quickly. Golden rays blended with shades of pinks and blues that trickled through the trees. Aside from a light chill the evening was nearly perfect for a night hunt.

A House That Will Last 9 Lives
If you have a cat, then you probably have noticed how they sleep where they want, eat what they want, and pretty much do whatever they want whenever they want. As cat owners, we find ourselves adjusting to their preferences probably ninety percent of the time. However, that other ten percent is when we go above and beyond for our furry beasts because we want to.

How to Make Your Pet Famous on Instagram
My name is Zulie and my cats are more famous than I am. I use the word “famous” a little leniently here.

Thanks for that.

The Farm Drama
On a farm somewhere in England, there was a horse named Harrow, a sheep named Shelly, a Golden Retriever named Daisy, a frog named Fredrick, a black cat named Crawford and a barn own named Barnaby. There were more animals on the farm but this was their main friendship group, they couldn't really make friends with the other animals because Fredrick always felt too intimidated by their size. Shelly was obviously an exception.
I sat against the wall and stared at the ceiling. Time will tell, that’s what they said. Time had come and gone and so had they. Outside, the others were still trudging through the backyard looking for treasure. I didn't share the same optimism. There wasn't much when the world was still burning so there wasn't bound to be any now. A few moments passed until one of them shouted for the others. They apparently found something interesting. I heard more shuffling around in the grass before they started calling for me.
Dizzy the Pig Dreams Big
There once was a pig named Dizzy. All two feet seven pink inches of Dizzy loved all the things that pigs do. He loved to roll in the mud. He loved eating all kinds of food. And most of all, he loved dreaming about things he had never done.
Snowflakes spun in the wind, dancing across the headlights on their journey to the ground. The road was turning deceptively white with powder, hiding the slick patches of sleet that had fallen earlier in the day. I studied my mom as she hunched forward, hands gripping the wheel, eyelids heavy. “We’re almost home,” she said.
Adventures with Orgone
A caged barn owl, I pondered. What sense does that make? Growing up I dreamed of being an owl because they seemed so wise and free. They didn’t need materials to define their identity. They were on their own schedule. Sleeping when most are awake and feasting at night when most least expect. I’d hear their hoots from a far, and If I was lucky, I’d find the culprit. So much mystery- too much to be locked away and stripped of their game with prey. Maybe it was my love for them that brought me here. Or maybe she cried out to me hoping I’d set her free. I was always an adventurous girl, but even I was stunned that I was trekking through the woods alone at night. It was as if something was calling me; a call that I couldn’t ignore. An hour passed and I was covered in dirt and twigs. This area was unfamiliar to me, but my swift and sure moves said otherwise. In all this darkness, shined a light. Suddenly, I knew that was my beacon. There was a window to a house I’d never seen before. I had no idea where I was or whose land I was trespassing on. I didn’t care; I followed my gut. I looked in and big, beautiful eyes pierced through me. The fire behind them set a flame to my heart.

A ruff start
When the pandemic hit, I got really REALLY sick of being stuck in my house. I work from home, my college kids moved home, I couldn't travel, I couldn't do any of the things I love to do -- eat out, visit my mom, act in community theater, sign up for fun runs -- nothing. I was in a rut, and feeling sorry for myself.
