#atozchallenge: Fear Jail

Just because I have cried wolf …

Today being April 1 … a monday, thus 100 Word Challenge for Adults day … All Fool’s Day to some, April Fool’s day to others but in both cases a day devoted to fools, and me being a master fool, a master of  100WCGU (in my mind anyway) and also a master of long complicated ... Read More

Seeking a miracle

Since I seem to be pretending to be part of the world again for the moment, I figured it was about time I got back in touch with my inner 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Imp. I have ben neglecting that worthy bit o’ imagination spreading for far too long again. Technically I have been pretty much neglecting EVERYTHING ... Read More

Eye of the beholder

I am tired. This is not new. I doesn’t help that I don’t exercise properly, or that I don’t eat right, or have a regular sleep schedule. But it is more than that.

I really wanted to ... Read More

Since then it has become a sort of seasonal habit for me to come up with some version. Technically it started a long time ... Read More

A shepherd's tale

My last few posts have been on the serious to sad side, so it is time for a bit o’ light hearted. Unfortunately due to some unexpected speed bumps on this weeks section of life’s highway, I am a tad late with the current 100 Word Challenge for Grownups. Finally I am at a point to sit down ...

If I had to describe my recent  life as a color, I might actually have to go with grey.  So it somehow seems appropriate that this week’s 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups has the prompt:  …GREY… Being the lover of doom and gloom that I am, this immediately worked for me, resulting in the following ...
