“Not right now, sweet thing, I have too much to do.”
“Okay, for just a half hour then. I promise to leave you alone for a while if you spend a half hour with me now.”
I wish I could but I know I can’t. If I could, I would. I always hear those statement together. So... I GPS'd it. ! look down at my phone, because to hold it straight up in front of me, and stand as if I'm looking into someones face would look crazy.Read More
Raindrops cling to the underside of the balcony railing, and I’m struck: everything is fragile. Everything is in wait for that precise, perfect moment. All it takes is…
