I simply haven’t got any whimsical inspirations for you today. I’ve spent to much time this week following other’s caprices. But a green silk couch to lie on and rest, that would be nice.

of all the assignments she could have gotten – to write for sixty seconds about the word ‘fiction’. Well, fiction is in the eye of the beholder, her time on this planet had taught her that much. Just when you thought the facts of a thing were indisputable, along would come some jackass claiming you were lying. How she hated everyone else’s personal fictions. The men she worked with were the worst -they’d dictate reality to suit themselves and walk away satisfied with the havoc they caused.

Sandwich, what a great idea. Ellen could really go for one – raspberry and ham on stale rye, her favorite. With a side of beet chips. And some lemonade. You just couldn’t get a better snack.

Wicker seats on the old lady’s porch were our summer haunts when the days got too hot for bike-riding or hide-and-seek. We’d sit in the dappled shade and enjoy the oven-hot breeze rising from the lake; it’s heat still moved the air enough to coolus although it was like being slowly dried in a convection oven.
