Stilettos You’re oh so enticing lined in a row. A multitude of styles, patterns, shapes, and colors. Where you’ll take me, my mind explores –         to the boardroom         to the dance floor         to a night of amour Wanting so much to scoop you up, slip you on and slip away –         to another location         to …

Finding a Porpoise

Finding a purpose is a purposeful life-long journey, and one I commend, but I just want to find a porpoise who can teach me how to click and spin, and how to play with wild abandon, and how to hold my breathe while diving to deep depths. With a sense of purpose, my newfound porpoise …

Saturday Shorts – Writing

This photo features a long road, but it is short on the truth of what you will find in this post. Although I live in the land of saguaros and sunshine, this post features short lines, not the Sonoran Desert's year-round short hem lines. 😉 Writing is the topic of my fourth edition of Saturday …

Fresh Toots and Warm Bubbles

This year, I must have been quite nice, because Santa appeared not once, but thrice. The first Santa smiled from behind a mask and courteously answered each question I asked.

a Curiouser and Curiouser night

Answering to Alice A fantastical story, first read through child’s eyes meeting a white rabbit and a girl, simple and polite following a rabbit down a hole, curious she was, if not bright swishing past cupboards and bookshelves, tumbling into make-believe falling with her, down a long tunnel and in my childhood dreams into a …
