Night Stroll

It finally feels like spring.   The sun was out, making my glasses turn black.  The air was fresh and clean and the pollen wasn’t even bothering me.  The temperature got to 70.  It’s 10 pm, the temperature has dropped to 56, but I feel like a stroll.  Off we go…

Other Fifty Words:

  1. Resident Alien : Hedge
  2. The Other Palette: Fifty
  3. Margaret Rose is here
  4. zaphnathpaaneah was too late
  5. smoothcreminal secretly smiles
  6. chey no longer sits in silence
  7. Making life an Art eats fries
  8. Speaking voiceless has a secret
  9. Jewel and her mouse
  10. Be lofty and a tip

The Sound of Silence


Write about silence…

When do I hear feel silence?  Never

Right now I am sitting on my couch.  Mercy is asleep.   Even my cat, Gidget, is asleep on my feet.  Here are the sounds in the background:

  • TV — Moonstruck
  • The refrigerator — I really need to have the management look at it.  I’ve never had a fridge that loud. Continue reading
