Re: Lioness of the Desert

Indeed I heard rumors of a black panther roaming the bayous of my hometown in Natchez, Mississippi when I was a child. Just because the forestry service won't confirm these sightings doesn't mean they didn't happen. Forest rangers can't observe all of what goes on in your southwestern New Hampshire ...

Lioness of the Desert

Lioness of the Desert Over breakfast, I break some news for Marsha. “Hey let’s try this on for size. Marsha, I want to take you out into the deep desert. Maybe we’ll see some sandworms like in the Dune books.” She says, “You’re so crazy, but truly we could come home and find our balcony egged or dra...

Re: On the Road to Betrothal

Same with me my friend. I constantly gaze out the window on a plane. But being on top of the outdoor deck of our state capitol here in Louisiana gives me the heebee geebies.

Re: On the Road to Betrothal

Climbing ladders can be a challenge to one's tolerance of heights. I haven't done it in over a decade. Thanks for sharing my friend. :)

On the Road to Betrothal

On the Road to Betrothal They follow the ragged brow of the Hopi reservation to the ancient Pueblo of Walpi perched on its wrinkle. Atop the mesa, they sit in a room with a sandy floor with the other tourists. The timbers shake in the wind-driven sand of April. The Native guide, with his long hair, ...

The Off-Script Society

The Off-Script Society Today the grass is green and the women who keep me company show me their summer ways with sunshine smiles and June dresses. A single-lens reflex camera is slung over my shoulder to keep my three women always in the apple of their youth. We cross from the college campus through...

Re: Futurescape

Mnaz, thank you for truly understanding the direction I was going in here. Indeed our form of capitalism need not be the only one. But as you point out the free market economy has destabilized the ecosystem and eaten alive the diversity of species on our planet. Surely we can find a better way as th...

Futurescape

Futurescape A signal makes its way from deep space to their monitoring antenna. The message says a ship is on the way with a cargo manifest of robotic construction crews and urban planners. Rochelle’s heart sinks. Also in the message is a plan for the rapid conversion from a communal economy to a fr...

Re: Bourbon Street Lady

creativesoul, love hearing about Nawlins back then. Red beans and rice and root beer on a shoestring sound heavenly. But being fed by the restaurant where you work makes it even sweeter. If only I'd been oid enough back then that sounds like the way of life I'd have chosen. Great memories.

Re: Night of the Dead

Thank you so much for sharing that Sasha. My true love has also passed on. I too wonder if she and I will reunite at some point in the space-time continuum. I certainly hope so. Your memory here is beautifully worded and put into a mood of what could have been. I love how you express your feelings i...

Night of the Dead

Night of the Dead The night of the dead seduces me as I walk past the fish market. The smell of cooking swordfish is sweet as I walk between the stalls gazing at a beefy man with a crimson scar running like a snake down his cheek. I stop and ask him how much his fish is. “Twenty pesos,” he says. I r...

Re: Bourbon Street Lady

I just love knowing that my writing brought you back to such a great time in your life. Thank you for sharing your memory here. New Orleans is a whole other world than the rest of the country and it is good to know that Mardi Gras brought you joy at that time in your life.
