Dumpster Roses

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

It’s not what I expect to find when I take out the trash. Laying on the ground at the foot of the dumpster is a clear glass vase filled with a dozen red roses. Complete with all the greenery and Baby’s Breath, there is a red and black teddy bear lashed to the vase with […]

Ghost Writer

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

The wall mounted mirror is behind the door so you don’t see it when you walk in. Only when you walk out. Even then, I never paid any attention to it. On this particular day life was pouring in more than usual. Like the way I used to feel shoveling through a giant drift after […]

“So I’m not four anymore?” “No, Annie. You’re five now. Happy Birthday!” For weeks Annie and Emma have been talking about how they would soon be five years old. Now that the day is here, they seem a tiny bit wistful pondering that being five means they are no longer four. I understand that. We […]
