  • People Watching

    People are an interesting lot. As I sit here, enjoying a glass of Pinot for the first time in twenty-six years, I reminisce over all the years gone by. I turned fifty-one yesterday and my life has taken many turns, but not so many all at once, as have ...

  • Everywhere's a Beach

    One sunny and clear day has collided into another. I can’t recall the last time it was a dark or stormy night. Almost nothing but sand as far as the eye can see as I stand here in what used to be a forest. Well… that was about five billion ...

  • Captive pt3

    He shows me to a small room upstairs where I will stay until I change my mind. In the middle of the night I creep out of my room. I fly downstairs and find the front door unlocked. I burst through it and hear a low chuckle. My heart pounds in my chest ...

  • Captive

    I find myself in an older mans house. His tone is kind but there is a twisted glint in his eyes that matches the way his lips curve up slightly. He’s telling me to do something on his computer. I walk up to it and wiggle the mouse around to wake ...

    Find middle C, I told myself. I should be able to remember at least that. My fingers can find their way through a C+ scale. But I don’t remember how to do a D major or E minor scale. What were the sharps and flats? What about arpeggios? I canR...
