A Forgotten Town

Today’s Slice of Life writing comes from inspiration I had while driving south to see my sister and her family. I don’t mind long drives because it gives me time to listen to audiobooks or podcasts or just reflect on the scenery as I drive. It can be dull, but sometimes you drive through little […]

A Storm Rolling In

All I could see as the storm rolled in was the darkened sky and the wind moving the leaves of the trees — green shifting through an entire spectrum of its shades.  I watched, leaning back in my chair, tucked safely under the awning.  I suppose lightning could still strike me — but the storm wasn’t […]

A View from my Balcony

#SoL20: New Reading Spaces

This weekend I have spent a lot of time with my nose in a book.  I tried changing things up by reading in different places in my apartment that I don’t typically read.  Mainly to avoid falling asleep in my bed when I shouldn’t. One day, it was the spare room in my apartment.  Despite […]
