    The glorious cathedral of Mont Saint Michel sits high on top of a steep hill off the shore of Normandy, France. During high-tide the hill is completely isolated by the waters that wash up to its base, but at low-tide there is a pathway of lush green grass leading into the mainland. Surrounding the c...

    Creaking, moaning, rumbling, and bumping, the old bus rattled down the pothole filled street. It was mid-August and I had been thankful to get out of the humid, late-summer air and onto the air-conditioned bus. I had handed my carefully counted 9 quarters, totaling exactly $2.25, to the bus driver, ...

    Amie often wondered what was in the box. They would pass it everyday as they drove to preschool at Mrs. Peggy’s. It was stranded in the middle of a small, shallow, cattail-lined pond, surrounded by industrial buildings and semi-trucks. It seemed so lonely just sitting there day after day in the mi...

    She bowed her head, her arms held gracefully out from her sides. In her right hand she daintily holds a flower blossom; in her left hand is a slender bouquet. The gentle wash of the dwindling summer sun caused soft, but defined shadows to play over her marble-white dress. Her kind, stone eyes gaze u...

    I was listening to the radio the other day when an advertisement came on. It was promoting a pill that you could take and it would help you stay awake if you had an irregular sleeping schedule. It started out by describing what the pill was, “Do you have trouble staying awake? Do you have an incon...

    Distasteful: Just saying it is satisfying: the crisp T’s that bounce on your tongue, the smooth S’s that slide through your teeth, the satisfying ending with “-ful,” as you let your bottom lip flop across your upper teeth. It is a sadly dejected word; maybe for the better though, because i...

    The two futons that my sister, Zoey, and I slept on, when we were little, were set next to each other on the floor. Above them was a red lamp that washed the little room with a soft pinkish hue. My sister, my dad and I cuddled together, reading the story of Pinocchio, in which Pinocchio’s friends ...

    A small, rough hat atop a shining brown body. Faint lines like fairy fingerprints running down the smooth surface of the sides. An acorn is like a chubby schoolboy, proudly wearing his hat. He rests lazily in the grass or hovers proudly on the tree branch. His shining face beams up at ...

    I sit in the darkness, it surrounds me. I feel the darkness, it caresses me. I want the darkness, it attracts me. I long for the night, when into the world of dreams I soar. I long for the night, when the silence of peace lightens my spirits. I long for the night, when the world sleeps...

    The moonshine falling over the dancing ripples of water, sparkling like a fairy queen flitting about gracefully. The loons calling out in mournful loneness. The fir trees looming tall over the deep brown earth, hovering parents- parents sheltering their child. Canoes sliding thro...

    A slip of paper sits, quivering, in the grass. What it contains is impossible to read. It flutters in the breeze, but feels secure, then all of a sudden, it is gone. Where did it go? So fast, so unexpected. Like a mysterious note, away flies my childhood. I never guessed that it would leav...

    A dandelion- plain and simple, as ordinary as a nail in a board. Layer by layer, peel away the outer petals to reveal the sweet, pure center. The brilliance of the sunshine in petals so dainty- so small. Yet under its façade of passive beauty, lives an orb of unbeatable fire....

    I see light dancing through vast windows, casting a warm glow across wooden pews. I see Mary cradling the Christ child, her arms wrapped gently around his small body. I see Jesus preaching to his disciples, inspired by the radiant spirit of His Father. I see an archangel in a ray of sunshine...

    It could be a compliment that women are found so attractive that they are used to draw people’s attentions to products. But is that really the kind of compliment that women want to get? There’s the beautiful woman seductively arching her back over a bottle of liquor, her face not even on the p...
