Not in This Lifetime!

Not in This Lifetime!

As with so many other things, technology has made listening to music so easy. When I was growing up, we had cassette tapes. Does anyone remember how we used to make mixed tapes? I used to sit by the radio for hours, waiting for a song I wanted to record to come on. You had to time it perfectly if you wanted to avoid commercials or talking. You had to wait for the exact moment to press record and play,…

Daily Prompt: Foggy – A Foggy Night

Marley felt like she had been driving all night. She’d left as soon as she’d gotten the phone call that her mother had fallen ill. When she left, she had been in a rush, packing very lightly, and was sure she had forgotten something. Out of the corner of her eye, she could see the red light flashing on her phone. She reached over the console, feeling for her charger, but she couldn’t find it. She then realized what she had…

How can you help your significant other quit smoking?

How can you help your significant other quit smoking?

The truth is, you can’t help them. However, you can support them, and yes, there is a difference. You cannot help them, you cannot do it for them, but you can build them up during the process. When a person quits smoking, it is a choice they must make for themselves. They must want to do it, otherwise, they will never be successful. I don’t have any firsthand experience with addiction myself. In fact, I have never been addicted to…

When Savannah awoke, the room was dark and quiet. She got out of bed, walked to the window, and pulled the curtains open, revealing the light peeking through the individual slats of blinds. She then opened the blinds giving an entrance to the daylight. She reveled in the glorious light and could not wait to begin her day. Savannah was a morning person. As soon as the alarm sounded, she was on the go, never wasting a moment of daylight….

Daily Prompt: Shallow

Daily Prompt: Shallow

When she walked into the hospital room, she saw him there. He was lying motionless. It couldn’t be him she thought, it couldn’t be her little brother. He was surrounded by family, but she asked for privacy. All she wanted was time alone with him, time to say goodbye. She stood at his bedside and held his hand. He felt warm to the touch. She knew he was only there in a physical form, his soul had already gone. She…

Tea with cream, hold the sugar please.

Tea with cream, hold the sugar please.

So, do people really like the coffee itself, or is it all the stuff that dresses it up that they like? Growing up, my…

As a child, Savannah was a daddy’s girl. She followed him everywhere he went. She wanted to do everything he did. She would watch her father shave his face. When he was done, he would splash a liquid from a green bottle into his hands. Then he would rub his hands together and place them on his face where he had shaved. Savannah was caught on more than one occasion, imitating what she had seen. She recalls, the distinct fragrance…
