Photo Of The Week: Super Moon

I think I will post a picture a week. I’ve seen this done on so many blogs and it’s incredibly interesting to see what people find inspiring. So I thought I would do the same. Share with you a sight that has taken my breath away. I don’t normally take photos. Though I do witness […]

You Will Always Have My Bra

I was chatting with my dear friend yesterday (let’s call her Totes) about friendship. We were discussing the importance of offering support whenever it was needed. Of course, support is a given when it comes to friendship. But what got me thinking was this; can you ever ask for TOO much support? Is it possible to overstep […]

Short And Sweet

Quite frankly, that is how I prefer to write my stories. I’ve mentioned before that I have a stack of short stories in a box somewhere in the garage that I wrote when I was in my teens; well, nothing much has changed. So much so that I have decided to return to my roots. Instead of […]
