    Mum hated spiders, so did I.

    As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...

    Christmas shopping and strolling down an isle

    of the store. I stopped suddenly to look at something that had caught my eye, and the next thing two huge arms are at the side of me, and a body bumped the back of me. It was all over in an instant. I turned to see a very tall, well built black man who had "rear-ended" me...

    or 6, there was a little boy called Jason in one of my classes. He wore glasses, was very shy like me, and had a patch over one of his eyes. One day I blurted out something silly over what the sticker on his face was for, and since then we became the best of friends, and I used...

    I remember being in grade school

    and the teacher having all of us determine how old we would be in the year 2000. I remember thinking it would be forever before I was that old. There's a comical irony about sitting here now ready for 2016!!!!!

    On a cob web afternoon,

    In a room full of emptiness By a freeway I confess I was lost in the pages of a book full of death; Reading how we'll die alone. And if we're good we'll lay to rest, Anywhere we want to go. In your house I long to be; Room by room patiently, I'll wait for you there...

    since I've seen you, but I can remember everything about your face. No one talks to me like you did. I hope wherever you are, you know that. I hope you revel in the fact that since you've been gone, no one has come close to taking your place. I sometimes think you were the last...

    I remember a park. I don't know its name,

    but it is about 30-40 minutes from me. We had taken my grandfather there, and he was already sick. He had a weird brain disorder, and just kind of degraded until he passed away. I think we fed the birds. I want to be back in that moment now, knowing what I know.
