A Bump in the Road

At first, we thought the black liquid was oil, that we’d struck it rich and that we’d be able to retire and live in leisure. We actually started writing down all the ways we’d spend the money. Our first choice was an estate out in the country, with wide open spaces for the kids toContinue reading “A Bump in the Road”

Wanderlust: Ireland, Galway

Finally, I come to the end of my travel log from Ireland, 2017. The trip itself only lasted one week, but the experience will stay with me for a lifetime. Our last stop on the tour was Galway, a harbour city on the west coast of the country. By the time our group arrived inContinue reading “Wanderlust: Ireland, Galway”

Wanderlust: Ireland, Aran Islands and Dún Aonghasa

We’re coming close to the end of my adventures in Ireland from 2017. The next to last place we visited on this trip were the Aran Islands and Dun Aonghasa (pronounced Don Angus, if my guide is to be believed). First came the early morning ferry ride across a glorious blue and cold sea andContinue reading “Wanderlust: Ireland, Aran Islands and Dún Aonghasa”

Memory Found

Kerri watched as the bedroom door eased open and a man’s head popped into view. “Kerri, honey, are you alright?” He inched in slowly, as if afraid he might startle her, like she was a rabid animal. She breathed deep and nodded her head. She couldn’t bring herself to speak, because she could not recallContinue reading “Memory Found”

Wanderlust: Ireland, Cliffs of Moher

The next stop on my tour of Ireland from 2017 was my favorite part of the whole trip: The Cliffs of Moher. So much so, I even wrote a poem about it. This was an absolutely breathtaking sight. Though it was cold and rainy as it had been the entire trip, I wouldn’t have hadContinue reading “Wanderlust: Ireland, Cliffs of Moher”

Memory Missing

Kerri furiously tore through the sheets and pillows, seeking him out. Why couldn’t she recall his name? And who was he to her? Her mind, still fuzzy from the dizzying dream that felt all too real, searched frantically for the memory of whoever he was, something to cling on to. As her hands worked throughContinue reading “Memory Missing”
