On The Street Where I Live

I keep having an odd dream about you showing up on the street where I live. It would not be a good idea. For a start, the chances of me appearing on the street where I live are miniscule because I am hidden away. But worse still – in this day and age – people […]

Yummy Mummy

“Don’t they look delicious! Would you like to try a bite?” Gulp! I stared up and saw the generous cleavage behind two pink cupcakes. I sat up properly and swung my feet round onto the floor. As she stood there smiling, I edged forwards so that I was perched on the edge of the sun-lounger. […]

My Lone Swan

Arching his wings he settled onto the warm waters of the lake. Surprised by a noticeable absence he ruffled his magnificent feathers. She was normally there waiting for him. Where was she? As the sun hung low in the mournful sky, he waited in anticipation. There was no sign of her. Loud honks echoed across […]

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 […]
