Marsha’s Double Date

Marsha sat at her desk, trying to focus but she was so tired.  She should never have let Stephanie talk her into going on a double date.  They went for dinner and then to a nightclub.  It had been ages since she set foot into a nightclub.  As soon as she set foot into the …

His Type

It was an elaborate dinner for just the two of us, something I hadn't expected at all.  When I showed up at the mansion, I expected to find other guests but I was the only one.  I was escorted by a butler who walked with his back straight as a rod to the dining-room. She …

The Unknown God

“Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious;  for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:  TO THE UNKNOWN GOD..." - Acts 17:22, 23 One of my favorite sermons of the apostle Paul's was the one he …

The Flower Bed

I had the dream again last night.  I was lying on a bed of pink roses and other flowers, my eyes were closed as I inhaled their sweet fragrance.  I was wearing a pink tee shirt.  It actually looked good on me although pink isn't my color. In fact, I don't own anything pink.  I …

The Mystery Man/Spectral #writephoto

She didn't know what it was about the shell of what was left of Haverley Manor that fascinated her.  This morning as mist covered it and the surrounding area, giving it a ghostly appearance.  Perhaps it was the figure of a man walking across the fields and appearing at the first window which drew her …

The Trees/Caught #writephoto

I stood gazing up at the tree.  It was unlike anything I had ever seen.  It was twisted with a gaping hole through which the sun streamed through and its limbs looked like tentacles.  Of course, it got my imagination running wild.  I imagined that it was an alien tree planted among normal trees.  It …

Memories of Dad

She sat on the beach, watching the sun set over the sea.  This was her favorite spot.  She came here every Father's Day since her Dad died six years ago.   She missed him terribly. A heart attack had claimed his life and robbed her of the joy of having him give her away at her wedding. And …

Stress

What is stress?  For some it is trying to prioritise the many projects they have undertaken and making decisions.  For others it is moving to another apartment; raising a family; going for a job interview; meeting their future in-laws.  Stress is knowing that the deadline for an article is fast approaching and you just can’t …
