The snow fell softly against the windowpane,swirling and whispering against the glass as it settled to the street below,a soft white carpet of silent,glittering whiteness.Nothing moved beyond the glass,and only a few lights were visible here and there among the other buildings across the street.The lone figure behind the glass withdrew with a small sigh,wiping delicate hands on a towel the color of the snow before pulling a soft blue curtain across the empty view. The weather forecast the night before,of course,had made no mention of snow,or even of overly …

I woke up this morning with a sadness in my stomach, it ached like the anxiety of realizing some thing cannot be fixed; this is not an unusual occurrence for me as of late. I usually feel like fire- so unarguably alive, but I don’t feel like myself lately at all, more like a flame that keeps wanting to go out, but it won’t, its steadfast in it’s touch and go state. For weeks I have resisted sad songs, all of my studies in psychology have warned against submersing yourself …

God once gave just one man one wish. This man wished for someone that would be forever beautiful; to be in love eternally- that was his one wish. God granted this wish and the man lived madly and deeply in love for many lifetimes. He sat with his lover in orbit  and watched Redwood trees grow from saplings, existing sturdy for 2,000 years, never needing to budge because trees get it right the first time, but even a tree grows weary after two decades. The man and his lover watched …

It was strange to her, all the new smells and colures. Ever since the accident, all around her had been transformed from cool blues and placid whites to deep reds, yellows and earthy browns. Even the smells of her old life, freebrees and overpowering floral flavored air fresheners had been replaced by sweet smelling tobacco, old leather, cinnamon and engine oil. Even the sounds had changed, for example rite now he was playing vitamin C by Can, a song she had never thought of listening too before now. Never the …

Darkness,silent,ebony,velveteen,soft as a lover’s kiss.I awake slowly,cast my gaze upon this silken nothingness,finding some relief within,aware of little else other than the absence of sound around me.I feel soft folds of cloth at my fingers,the soft caress of my hair against my cheek;perhaps this darkness has sharpened my awareness more than normal. The clock’s red dial informs me it is twelve past noon,although the room beyond the velveteen curtain is nearly as dark as night itself.I don’t like daylight,I never have,it seems so unnaturally bright,so..bare and open,if you will.There is …

A young teen decided to do some shopping for the day at the local mall. She wanted to buy a new purse she’d been eying for quite some time and determined the wait was over.  Her mind was made up to finally make the purchase.  And besides, it matched the new dress she had bought a few days earlier perfectly. After purchasing the item she began to peruse the other stores in case something else might catch her fancy.  As she walked slowly from one store to the next browsing, …

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. …

It is said that people often show true excellence in the midst of great tragedy. This was certainly true in the story I’m about to tell… The Siskiyou Golden Fair is the event to top all events in Siskiyou County. Retailers and social clubs begin planning their exhibits and food booths for next year’s fair before Christmas. The fair happens during the hottest time of the year—early August—when air conditioners run non-stop and a sedative quiet emanates from deserted streets. It’s during this time when activity begins to stir at …
