Storms. Lightning. Thunder…


Did you hear the storms last night? Did the lightning and thunder keep you
awake? Certainly affected me! 

CHATTAHOOCHEE CHILD – EXCERPT

Remembering “Mama”


Perhaps this essay will be another chapter in “CHATTAHOOCHEE CHILD.” [My latest work-in-progress]: Mama wore her best house dresses when she was in a good mood, which wasn’t often enough. Those days, it felt as if the sunshine from the window kissed the living room with colors of the rainbow, at least for me.  MamaContinue reading “Remembering “Mama””

Just a few days ago, we had a summer storm in the afternoon. I was in route to get my doggies from the groomer. Every time I saw the lightning flash, I jumped, while driving. It isn’t a pretty sight.

Chattahoochee Child – Excerpt


Over the years, the expression “Blood is thicker than water,” gave me a new understanding about that fictitious statement. If the blood within my family circle as a child was thicker than water, I recognized our biological blood never existed.             Savannah, my disabled sister, was always described as the least attractive and illiterate familyContinue reading “Chattahoochee Child – Excerpt”
