I’m starting to keep track of how often I get sleep hallucinations. They often are related to stress. However, I’m on summer break, just finished my thesis, and teaching doesn’t start for another 2 1/2 weeks. (Probably stressed my summers almost over) Who knows? … A glass of wine before bedtime. Mindhunters on Netflix And…

Organic

A wealthy man reaches for his cocaine. He now can’t resist only the temptation of a Saturday night, but the temptation turns into a meal.  Three times a day. A farmer works very hard in his field. His pride and joy. Providing meals for everyone all over the world.  I highly praise their hard work…

The American Dream

The American Dream A phrase well known and well wished for by many. A desire from many countries and a desire from many people here…my home country, America. I heard this phrase twice today from two different people and at opposite ends of America. Both used in a negative way. Age 58 and age 39….

Ten

Dear Teacher, I’m ten years old right now. I live with my dad, but I don’t feel like I know him. I think his favorite color is blue, but that’s only because he has a blue chair he sits in and watches TV drinking some apple juice. I wonder if he knows my favorite color…

Top Hat

An unfamiliar face. An unfamiliar place. I sip my cold black coffee, looking at the grey pin-up posters on the wall. Right above the bright red milk shake booths. A unique shack filled with history, where the people are true and the aura is blue. Reminiscing on the thought of the blazing 40’s, of which…

Twenty Hours

(K) The adventure, the thrill, the excitement of the unknown is always intriguing and at best a spontaneous chance one may take… Even if it is with a stranger… It all started with a four A.M. alarm followed by the arrival at an unfamiliar house with a decent back yard.  I wouldn’t know.  He gets in…

Hippie Life.

As I was driving on the dusty gravel road in my rear wheel red Chevy cobalt, I think back to a happy time as I see the corn fields tall against the cotton candy sky.  Oh we had so much fun playing hide and go seek in the corn field with my cousins and my…

Sleepy Spiders

After a great Monday’s day of work and a nice kickboxing session I crawl into my tan microfiber sheets with a smile on my face.  A great day done, with a fitness idea goal in my mind for the next day.  I rest my eyes and try to catch some ZZZ’s since I need to…

Hot Tub

As I’m running across the sparkly snow barefeet, slightly naked, I think about how wonderful the night is.  The hazy sky showing no stars but only the three-quarter moon which shines bright on the dusty falling snow.  I skimmer across as quickly as possible, with my spectacular friend Carrie at hand. She’s adorable with a…

Yellow Submarine

I walk towards my bombay mahogany shoulder high dresser and pick up the needle on the suitcase record player.  Dropping it on the 33 ½ vinyl record, I start to hear the melancholy voice of the Beatles.  As the floor meets the impact of my t-shirt and ripped up blue-jeans I reluctantly crawl into my…

Bleeding Hearts

I will forever be in like with the tiger lilies standing tall in my childhood flower bed. Those were my second favorite. My ultimate favorite love were the bleeding hearts. I wish I could have taken them with me for the rest of my life. Those beautiful pink and red hearts appearing to my hopeful…
