Daphne sat in her cubicle at the bank crunching ice as she went over the mortgage papers for the Chesterfield account. Everything looked in order, so the closing on their house should be easy peasy. She hated when things went haywire at the last minute, so she always did her best to ensure her clients had nothing to complain about, that the titles were clear and there were no troublesome liens that came out of nowhere only to surprise everyone involved. She had just slipped all of the paperwork into a folder when she heard a tapping on her wall. “Oh hi Mr. Price,” she said, smiling up at her boss. Read more of this post

There Comes A Time – Part One [FICTION]

In an effort to take control of her life once again, one woman begins at the gym. (Photo by Garen Meguerian, Flickr)

Clunk! Carla dropped the weights, her arms too weak to curl fifty pounds at once. She hadn’t been to the gym in years, and she winced from the effort. Sweat dripped from her brow, her face was flushed, and she felt as though she wanted to vomit.

Hi everyone,

It is April and warmer weather has arrived in many parts of the country, or at least in the Southern states. Here in Texas the landscape is exploding with the prettiest bursts of green, but I know it isn’t that way for everyone just yet. I listened to my pals Phil Paleologos, Kasey Silvia and Dan McCready on the radio this morning, and they just got more snow across Massachusetts last night, but it was a light dusting, not the thick blankets of snow we got when we were living there at this time last year. But still, the spring flowers are coming, and although the weather is still a bit indecisive, I’m sure we’ll all be complaining about the heat before long. Read more of this post
