Good Morning!  After a week of temperatures in the 60s and 70s, this morning’s 43 degrees and strong northerly wind feels blustery!  And as the morning sunlight attempts to cut through the hazy fog I feel optimistic and am ready to work.   I’m sitting in my little writing nook (also known as a detached garage)...

Kenda was well aware of the difference one small choice could make.  A left turn instead of a right, a smile instead of a frown, and the course of entire lives could be changed.  She almost wished that she were a mortal being; they possessed a certain happiness in their blissful ignorance, unaware of the...

The Dream Eater

Chantelle is day-dreaming again.  Her dream eater has been gone for a long time and now the nightmares follow her through the waking hours like lovesick puppies.  Currently she is flying down the hall pell-mell and I jump back and flatten myself against the row of lockers as she tears around the corner.   The tornado...

Good Evening!  As I write this I am excited for a lunar eclipse that will begin in a few short hours.  And I wonder if I will be able to stay up for it, or if I should just go to sleep now and get up in the wee hours to observe it.   I’m a... Continue Reading →

The End of Innocence

The tiger walked beside Lindy, butting it’s big head against her hand.  Lindy jerked away, annoyed, and crossed her arms over her chest.  The tiger was getting skinnier; she could see it's ribs through it's sagging skin.   She didn’t want the tiger anymore, didn’t need it.  But still it followed her.   “Your magic is dying,”...

The In-Between

Good Morning!  As I write this post the shifting winds outside are blowing a low bank of slate gray clouds across the landscape.  Precipitation drips from them even though it doesn’t reach the ground, and the effect is that it looks like vaporous jellyfish tentacles, reaching down fruitlessly only to evaporate.  I feel as if...

Black Hole Jumper

Tilda stared out the airlock at the gaping nothingness before her.  She was really, finally, going to do it.  She was going to jump.   Now that the fruition of her long journey was within her grasp she wondered at her lack of second thoughts.  Everyone had warned her about them:  the Jumper’s clubs, the message...

Good Afternoon! Do you ever look up at the night sky? If you've done so lately, from the northern hemisphere at least, you've noticed that just after sunset the planets Venus, Saturn, and Jupiter are fairly close together right now, appearing in a line stretching upwards from the western horizon. This line is called the... Continue Reading →

States of Being

Good morning! It's that time of year again - the time when I bring my tropical houseplants indoors. And even though I've carefully checked all of the pots to make sure I'm not bringing in any unintended hitchhikers, and this includes tipping them and checking the bottoms for scorpions - even though - I still...

Good afternoon! As I write this post, autumn is in mid-swing and the world outside my window seems locked in a battle between summer and winter. Two days ago the temperature was in the seventies and I was wearing short sleeves; today it's a winter coat and hat and the sky overhead is threatening rain.... Continue Reading →
