The Storm

The snow was coming down in earnest – and we still had not found a place to take shelter.  I didn’t want to admit it, but I was starting to panic.  Rachel looked bad, staggering as she walked knee deep in the snow. I didn’t see it at first –a grey smudge against the blinding... Continue Reading →

Sometimes. I feel that there is nothing left for me, except to breathe in and out and enjoy this one small act.

“whoa man, you wouldn’t believe what I’m seeing …”  Martin was sitting on the lounge, waving his arms through the air – not paying much attention to Jake.  “man..” chuckled Martin “I’m making fireworks with my hands, this is so frikken cool”. “grasshopper..… I’ve got a grasshopper sat across from me, dressed in a green...
