Leave the World Behind

“Shall we?”, she asked excitedly, looking over at him. Usually, she preferred to be in control of the car herself, but with him, she loved not driving. It made her feel safe and protected, deliciously female. Her hand rested on his leg, her body turned slightly towards him.  He looked over at her, smiling, and…

A Day in the Life & A Play With Word Count

Hey Siri. Ding. What time is it? It’s 6:15am. Way too early. (She’s hilarious). My alarm is set for 6:35am but I decide to get up anyway. I hear Gidget stretching and I ask her how she is. She stretches again, shakes herself as dogs do, and pounces on the spot right by my head,…

Waiting the Time Away

Inspired by the photo from my post this morning featuring a similarly edited photo. This one is a scene in Boston from a few years ago. My camera was new and I was fascinated by this “art filter” that the camera can apply. I’ve always loved this photo.  I wonder if she’s just waiting for…

To Write, or Not to Write 

What do I do when I’m not writing? Sadly, I am not a writer. When I was at school (maybe around the age of 10?) I desperately wanted to be an author. I was an avid reader of Enid Blyton when I was young and then I was addicted to the Trixie Belden books in…

Five Minutes with Chocolate Cake – RegularRandom

A few people have pointed out that I haven’t done a RegularRandom with something sweet in a very long time, and they’re right! So, today is the day. A quick look at the rules: A quick recap of the #RegularRandom rules: choose a subject or a scene spend five minutes photographing it – no more!…
