In the Alley

When the barometer drops, I feel the rotation in the churning clouds. I’m itching to be with Jeff, chasing storms instead of sick in bed on my cell listening to them talk about congestion on the dirt roads. Too many novices craving tornado selfies. Continue reading

Happy Day

Imagine #amwriting

Do I do a mea culpa? I wrote the Sean story so that he could show his compromise. This story is for me, because.
