Those Swingin' Sixties
I am a woman of a certain age and coming up on another changing of the decades soon. What concerns me most is maintaining my health, but what comes as a very close second is "What should I wear?" Just because a person can fit into certain clothes doesn't me...

Evening at a Country Inn
by Jane Kenyon From here I see a single red cloud impaled on the Town Hall weather vane. Now the horses are back in their stalls, and the dogs are nowhere in sight that made them run and buck in the brittle morning light. You laughed only once all day-- whe...

Sunday in CinCity

Diner
By Louis Jenkins The time has come to say goodbye, our plates empty except for our greasy napkins. Comrades, you on my left, balding, middle-aged guy with a ponytail, and you, Lefty, there on my right, though we barely spoke I feel our kinship. You were ste...

Three Mornings

Story
Tagline
This is my story and I'm sticking with it.
Introduction
Mother to two full-of-beauty girls, an outside cat who became an inside cat but likes to go outside then back inside, a handsome boxer dog, and multiple fish all named Chang. A dancer's spirit in a nurse's body. Bent, but not broken. Yet.
