On this Two Way Street (Short Story)

It is a peculiar place. In a November afternoon reminiscing of an April of years ago – the crispy breeze amongst a sun bestowing light generously but only teasing samples of its warmth. The leaves that left, the soil that wept but the seasons are one and the same. All in this vicinity that had…

The Pearl (Recommended Reads)

Recommended Reads: The Pearl by John Steinbeck My rating: 4 of 5 stars John Steinbeck is perhaps most remembered for ‘Of Mice and Men’.

When Pay Shuns the way (Short Story)

  She had been in and out of the wards more than most of the staff there, more a part of the block than the hospital bed she lay in. Her medical condition meant hospital had become her home, more so than the property she supposedly lived in. Fatigue was now conquering her fighting spirit,…

Of us.… are fools, who beat up and look down, frown, begrudge, berate, belittle, besiege.. holding to beef. Beware!

In the hot seat (Short story)

‘Tell me… how you are feeling?’ I always wonder if I am the only one who can explain the details of pains or symptoms, complain about them at length, but when it comes to being seated with a professional – all blank. I was lying back on the white reclined sofa in the same manner…

Five minutes (Short story)

From the balcony, he could see the grey area between life and death. Pedestrians, so small and insignificant from where he stood over and watched, scurrying like ants… but they weren’t like ants…far from it. Ants co-operate, ants protect, ants work tirelessly and can see the goals in their sacrifice. Ants don’t, or at least…
