    Hugs

     I have had many perfect moments. But just last night, I had an absolutely perfect one. Two people who care about each other embraced in a tender and long hug. It was a perfect moment for me and this boy, holding each other close with no inhibitions.

    Momma Bear

    Just last night, we were snuggled in with a heart warming tale of "The Cat In The Hat Comes Back".  It was around 11:00 and my 6yr old lil girl was tired, after an evening of swimming.  We finished the book and she laid her head against my chest and said "Mom, I can hear your...

    The Window

    I was driving on a gloomy overcast day and my mood was bleak to say the least. I was traveling along the serpentine roads that leads up, down, and around where the stern mountains clash with the relentless ocean to create steep and jagged cliffs, ...

    A Crystalline Blanket of Snow

    Last Week

    We were lying in bed, in each others arms, in a thatch rondawel out in the African bush, fire cracking and casting a magical light, bounding off the stone walls, talking about our plans for the future, things that happened in the past, and at that very moment I thought 'this must...

    Disney Movie Moment

    I was at an audition for a musical, and I was waiting in the hallway for my turn. I was standing by the stage manager's table, and I noticed this really good-looking guy signing in. I noticed him because he was probably close to the only guy that I had seen so far waiting to...

    It Was Just A Brief Moment..

    I was sitting, sharing a makeshift seat of a rectangle floatation device normally used for rescue, with my friend who was at that time a lifeguard.  We were chatting away looking out to the sea, as we did most days back then, and then quite suddenly, we had one of those...

    It wasn't with someone, it was just one moment when I could feel happiness swell inside me till it felt like my chest would burst. When I think back on it, it was probably teenage hormones. I was 14 and sitting in English class where we were trying to experience the joys of Silas...

    When I was fourteen, I was watching my baby cousin Nathan. It was the first time I'd ever spent a lot of time with an infant. I thought I was going to panic. I didn't really know what to do. I'd changed diapers before, but I was all by myself with him. Well I fixed him a bottle...
