Photographing A Movie Star

“To the left a little, chin up, good, hold that. Tilt your head a little, look straight at the camera, and look down, good. Let’s try a smile, ok, and close your eyes, and now open, look right, and down, and now straight at the camera. Good. Ok, I think that’s a wrap.” I put […]

Smiling Kisses

I had a dream about you recently. It started out as mundane as can be. We were hanging out, eating breakfast, looking at each other’s writing, making suggestions, praising each other shamelessly, our feet snuggling under the table. After a morning of concentrating on editing, we decided we deserved the chance to relax. We went […]

The Coryphée

In a triumphant grand jeté, he leapt onto the stage just like a young gazelle in heat. Muscles rippling through his legs caused him to spring all over the boards with gleeful animation. He made it look all so easy. Every dancer in our corps de ballet gazed in wonder at his agility. As a […]

You Appeal To The Child Within Me

I wonder if you raised an eyebrow when you saw this title. But it is true. There is a little girl within, innocent as can be, pure-hearted, full of imagination, full of dreams. Don’t we all have a child within who seeks adventure but needs safety? Aren’t we drawn to someone that excites us and […]

You Took Me To Paradise

During a time I was confined, imprisoned, or in other words “quarantining”, you took me many thousands of miles away to a place where my entire soul was in bliss. You were holding my hand tightly as we explored those exquisite islands, as we allowed sun and breeze, surf and sand, to charm us into […]

Uccello Azzurro E Pettirosso

As the dawn breaks the birds of the forest form a chorus divine. It is rare that a human ear has access to the exquisite symphony that a thousand chirps and warbles can form – an unequaled splendour to leave one entranced. But of all the feathered creatures who give forth their voice to greet […]

If It Makes You Happy…

Dear Claude I am feeling….well, I hardly know. Is it anger? Is that your fault? Is it envy? Is that my fault? I just feel unhappy. I feel hurt. You made me feel special. You made me feel like I was the only one. You made me feel as if the stars were shining brighter […]

You Are Perverse!

I am just going to say here…this is fiction…I know it reads as non-fiction, but I was super-mad with one of Ben’s team who grabbed my behind a few days ago and called me “cutey”. What the hell is the matter with these guys? This is the second time in a year I have had […]

Our Sunset Drives

Those were the days. You worked over time for months so you could buy yourself that pick-up truck. You would pick me up after I finished my shift at the ice-cream store, heavy rock music blasting from your speakers. Leaning forward I would change the radio station. You would groan as I sang along to […]
