Ocean Scenery

There aren’t many places in the world that make me happy more consistently than the ocean. Or, perhaps, the beach by the ocean (because let’s face it, I’m not out in the water… it’s Alaska, for Pete’s sake). It’s the smell in the air. The wide open spaces. The sounds of seagulls and eagles screeching. […]

2:06am (Insomnia)

We were laying on the bed facing one another. Our breathing slowing as we had just made love and it was intense and deep. We were looking into each other’s eyes and I reached over and gently stroked down the side of your face with my fingertips. Your eyes gently closed and you had such […]

Our spirits became bound, […]

Across the Table

How many times had they sat opposite this very table from one another? Dozens. A hundred? They had been friends for years, him and her. Seen each other through thin times and thick. Friends. Good friends. She through a divorce. He through a massive breakup (though he would never tell her what all went wrong […]

Fearless
