    The autumn sun shines in like a spotlight, and a beautiful breeze brushes and blows against the olive shutters. Inside is a place to make and bake, a place where all are accepted and welcome. Salt and pepper shakers dance across the table with a cling, while a puff of cinnamon intoxicates ...

    “My hero is not quite a hero,” my mother said, “for he is a liar, and liars cannot be heroes.” “Why, that is not true, dear mother,” I responded, “for lying is an art; it takes courage, intelligence, confidence, even nobleness. You see, liars are the true heroes. Honesty is...

    I’d never known what it truly felt like to be cold until I met her. Her eyes are an Alaskan skyline, dark, dull, and bitter, rising like scars after a laceration, then blending back into the hollow of her head. The breath which accompanies her whispers is chill condensation evaporating ...

    Her Alaskan eyes whisper sweet secrets and lies, but dissolve away to expose the naked below. Symbols of fear fade away fast, like the loveliness of an orchid once you squash it with your step. Dissolving away to expose the naked below, the petals collapse in a petrified state. Like the lo...

    This morning I had a cockroach for breakfast. I make them deep-fried so the outside is crisp and crunches under my teeth, while the center remains a plump, luscious serving of squashy goodness. I always eat them whole, popping their bite-sized, defenseless bodies into my mouth, rubbi...

    It happened the summer when I was nine. My Girl Scout troop, our leader Mrs. Beaver, and I went to Camp Hoover up in northern New Jersey for three days. Never too much of an outdoors child, I was happy to have the opportunity to finally immerse myself in a different surrounding, and get over my fear...

    As we all should know, February is Black History Month. Ever since 1926, this month has been a “national annual observance honoring and celebrating the achievements of African-Americans.” At the time, only about 60 years after the end of the Civil War, this holiday seems to have been absolutely ...

    The entire month of February, specifically Valentine’s Day, is essentially characterized by the shape of a heart. One sees hearts everywhere: as decorations in people’s houses, doodled on the sides of a young girl’s notebook, printed on cards, forming the shape of most boxes of chocolates, etc...

    I knew he was about to leave so I ran out there as fast as I could. I still remember the feeling of the dampness on my bare feet as I raced across the wet pavement. I made it just in time. He rolled down the window, and with tears in my eyes, I asked, “Daddy, why are you leaving us?” His answer ...

    I journey to you, for my impulse thrusts me in your direction, the entire world turns idle and I find myself involuntarily seeking you. The fear of forever, which once hovered over me with redundant intimidation, has suddenly turned into a fear of nothing at all. This voyage is that of a subm...

    Everyone believes in something – religion, an afterlife, love at first sight, fate, marriage, destiny, gods, ghosts, etc. For many, these beliefs make up a large part of their lives and their being. In fact, for some, their beliefs define them. Beliefs have a major effect on today's society...

    A name is a bracelet, a string of letters we wear around our wrist to accent who we are. How strange a society that we label ourselves with sounds. Even more baffling, we do not choose our own label, our parents do before they even have a glimpse of who we are or who we will be. This glass tr...

    This September a nauseating invasion of privacy and case of harassment led to the suicide of a freshman named Tyler Clementi at Rutgers University. Tyler’s roommate, Dharun Ravi, set up a webcam which live-streamed Tyler partaking in a “sexual encounter” with another male to anyone who “dare...
