Ash – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Ash watched the photos he tossed into the fire curl up and burn to ash, and hoped his memories of Amber would burn away with them, but the red embers left after the fire burned low only served to remind him of her red hair and fiery personality.

Memories Of Us – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem


The touch of your hair

And warmth of your breath

On my cheek.

The feel of your hand

In my hand.

The light of joy

In your eyes.

All of the places

That we’ve been.

All of the things

That we’ve done.

All of the plans

That we made.

But you have gone

Without a goodbye

And left me here

With only these

Memories of us.

Echo – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Becca wandered through the old house one last time. Childhood memories played out before her mind’s eye like snippets from a movie, and the phantom laughter of children playing seemed to echo in her ears from the rooms as she visited them for the final time. She hated to have to sell her childhood home, but with her parents now gone, she couldn’t afford to keep it herself. When she was done, she closed the front door on her past and handed the key to the realtor.

Redolent – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

As he stepped through the front door with his gifts in his hands, the redolent odor of chocolate chip cookies drifted in from his grandmother’s kitchen, and the memories it evoked made David instantly feel as if he were a kid again. With a big grin, he set the gifts under the Christmas tree and hurried into the kitchen.

R.I.P. Robin Williams


I still can’t believe the news that the great actor and comedian Robin Williams is dead. I didn’t want to believe the first reports I saw, but when the major news outlets started reporting it, I had to resign myself to the fact that he was gone. He was one of my favorite actors. I first remember seeing him in reruns of Mork and Mindy when I was a kid. And I loved him as the voice of Genie in Disney’s Aladdin. He was great in Good Morning, Vietnam, HookJumanj, Dead Poets Society, Night at the Museum, and so many other movies. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Robin.
