The Sights and Sounds of Country

July 3, 2016

Chirping birds, barking dogs, Flowing streams, chopping of logs, Nowhere to go, no need to hide, Little markets on the pier side, Children laughing, clear skies, Perhaps a walk, perhaps a bike ride. Narrow lanes, no vehicles nigh, Time passes slowly, I wish it’d stop ticking by. Ice-cream shops on winding roads, Cottages for room […]

May 29, 2016

My mom would have turned 65 on May 30th. Sharing my birthday week with her used to be very exciting when I was younger. Now, it’s the worst thing ever. May is a hard month. My parents wedding anniversary was May 18th and then her birthday, followed by mine. I just feel blue and pissy. Over […]

While the word “husband,” is still foreign to me, Sid and I have been married for five years and been together for nine. We can read each other’s minds and complete each other’s sentences. We have come a long way in our journey of harmoniously living together. While we still have the good fortune of […]

When I first met Mary*, what struck me most was her loud, shrill voice. She had this deliberate way of talking – enunciating every word she spoke. It’s hard to tell her age, but my guess is 70s at least. She has very short salt and pepper hair, more pepper surprisingly. She is in a […]
