I’m Listening

I am sure they taught us at school that sound is essentially a vibration. Vibrations, waves – they are good words in light of what happened to my heart this week. Well this week I heard and listened to sounds that were new to me, sounds that sent vibrations through my heart, ripples and waves […]

My Shocking Superpower

When I saw that the 4 THOUGHTS or FICTION prompt was “SUPERPOWERS”, my mind was blank. Perhaps it is because I have been feeling rather pathetic for so very long, barely able to walk down the road without pain than makes me kinda waddle.

Thank You For Three Wonderful Years

I remember it like yesterday. That eventful day when Ben finally told me how he felt. At first I did not believe him, but then it started to click. After all, he had been following me around like a puppy for the past couple of years. He had never tried to make a move on […]

The Phenomenal Aunt Noo!

Ben is away walking up hills with some friends this weekend. I am glad for him. We have had to cancel some of our plans for weekends away because of my health, so I am very pleased Ben can see parts of the UK that I really wanted him to enjoy while we were here. […]

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.

What Would I Bake For You?

If only I had spent more time in the kitchen, developing my patisserie skills, then I could create something to tempt you!! Of course, I would choose your favourite flavours, the fruit that delights your palate. I would make the pastry delicate, but that perfect balance of buttery crumbliness that provides the perfect encasing for […]

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 […]
