Celebrate February with Love Letters: Part One

February 8, 2012

Love is in the air… …or maybe just plain craziness …the jury is still out. Writing is something I really enjoy doing. Writing is something I should do. Writing is something I need to do.

November 3, 2011

I looked up from my book and saw them— Two men. Two ages. Two lives. They had exited the store together—side by side. The younger, middle-aged one, wearing a wool plaid shirt, jeans, and work boots. The older, seventy/eighty-something one, had on tanish-colored polyester pants pulled up to his belly button, a white button up [...]
