Vince woke up to the curve of his wife’s back. He leaned across, still sheet-tangled, and traced her shoulder blade with his fingers. She made an inarticulate morning noise and rolled over.
Salt-and-pepper stubble, thick brows, a nose broken once in a fight and twice in a rugby scrum.
Vince recoiled like elastic. “Oh, shit.” ……Continue

"Louise," Thorny yelled from somewhere in the house. Probably his office, I thought, slamming the album of pictures shut. I was scrap booking, designing pages into works of art, adding photos almost as an afterthought. Low on paper cement I'd have to quit soon anyway. But, damn it to hell! What on earth did he want now?
I scooted my chair back from my desk in the dining room and walked into the hall. "Where are you?" I called. No answer. "Where are you, Thorny?" Louder this…Continue

Writing on verandah at villa in Negril with Carib sea just in the distance. Pretty morning, birds talking, flowers all around, sky clear as a bell. I'm ready for my second cup of coffee already. Up early today despite getting to bed little late last night. Watched game (Miami vs. Chicago) at a local bar last night with big sis, a friend and a couple of rastas. Wow, what a game. Chicago showed out! Was rooting for Miami, but I think next one is Wednesday, so I will be ready. C'mon…Continue

A Kiss in the Rain | Anne Parks
He stood in front of her, dripping wet from the rain, still breathing heavy from his impromptu mile and a half run to her house. She just looked at him, not giving anything away. He understood her hesitancy; he had been completely inconsistent throughout the year they had known each other. He had…

I hope your day is going well. Feeling really blessed this morning, enjoying this life I've carved out for myself, in spite of so many things. Of course, money's always a little tight; haven't "made it" yet; but feeling so rich in so many things, and if God took me tomorrow, I would not regret one iota of today.
I hope this is life for you, too. If not, maybe consider changing some things ... I…Continue
