  • iKat, uKat

  • And Then She Was Gone

    I talked on and on about Kat and our life together and the Kat in front of me just sat and listened. As I talked my tears subsided and my eyes dried up. I sipped my coffee and kept going on about Kat; her beauty, her laugh, her smile, the way she liked...

  • One Wish

    My coffee had long since been finished and the sun was setting outside, but I was still sitting at the same table in the coffee shop with the other Kat. She had made me start about my Kat and now I couldn’t stop. It was like a floodgate that had ...

  • The Cliffs

  • 365 Days of Books

    It started off as a New Year resolution. The idea, not mine of course, though I would love to have taken credit for it. “Don’t wear white socks all year,”I suggested. “It’s been done,” Robin replied. “I give u...
