    A Crystalline Blanket of Snow

    This past autumn was difficult, especially the holidays. My emotions were tapped and I felt my stress level rising while my patience fell in perfect mirror fashion. I went to my Mom's house, which I have to drive over the mountains to get to. I desperately needed some...

    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...

    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...

    The Window

    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.
