Alheimers and old butcher knives #short Story #atozchallenge

“Daddy was the main caregiver for mama who has had Alzheimer’s for several years. She never knows who I am when I visit. At home she always had a pattern: She would look out the window, get a plate and arrange some cookies,  sit on a chair and wait. She would do that three times.Continue reading “Alheimers and old butcher knives #short Story #atozchallenge”

Emmanuel #Christmas #story

      There are people everywhere in this little village of Bethlehem. It was light when we began our journey. My little ones are cold, but they have to wait in line like the rest of us. “There will be a crust of bread soon,” I whisper.  I rock back and forth on myContinue reading “Emmanuel #Christmas #story”

Turn Back the Time #fiction #addiction

I stood before the hands of the giant clock. They teased me as they clicked: “you can go anywhere in your past choose but choose fast before the hand has gone one minute you will either venture or quit it.” I was faced with a genie in a bottle decision. Where do I go? WhatContinue reading “Turn Back the Time #fiction #addiction”

The Babushka Blessing #shortstory #Ukraine

We had one hour to do a frantic shop for items we could only get in Ukraine. The list from friends was rather long: Hand carved jewelry, stacking dolls, hand painted spoons … “Mommy we are going to run out of time. Why don’t we split up?” My precocious thirteen year-old daughter suggested. I scannedContinue reading “The Babushka Blessing #shortstory #Ukraine”

An Immigrant’s Dream #flashfiction #history #statueofliberty

“I see her far away in the distance.” a youngun called.

The Day They Packed My Computer #fiction #challenge

Today they moved the last of my belongings to somewhere. No one would tell me. My family thinks because I am “old” that those things no longer matter or that I will forget about them like I forgot the grocer’s name (last week). I watched someone fumble with the box containing my type written drafts,Continue reading “The Day They Packed My Computer #fiction #challenge”

You Poison Filled Wasps, #flashfiction #newcago #crime

Den of Iniquity, Brood of Vipers… Those automated doom machines are on the loose. The Chief of Police is in a coma. The mayor and sheriff are dead.

Almost every night,Continue reading “You Poison Filled Wasps, #flashfiction #newcago #crime”
