A Question of Personal Grooming

I spend half my life with my foot in my mouth, always engaging in conversation with the unlikeliest of people. This morning at 7 a.m. on a muggy summer miserable Monday it was a little too early for small talk, especially before coffee!  So when I asked for a ride home from my dealership, I fully intended on hiding behind my sunglasses quietly.


Sporting a yellow nametag that said ASHRAF, a forty-something man with a pudgy mid section, and a meticulously groomed mustache that…

My grandmother’s Armenian Bible is falling apart—its cardboard covers are worn, the spine is broken, the first 48 pages are missing, and until recently it was held together by a thick rubber band. When the rubber band cracked and crumbled, I tied a bright satin ribbon around it to hold it…

A Song To Remember

Thinking of you,I waited and waited into the stillness of the night,

Until dawn came and covered me with a mantle of golden light

It washed away all my wishes,hopes and prayers of last night
