By Geoffrey on August 13, 2018 / 250 views

By Geoffrey on August 13, 2018 / 250 views

I just watched Would You Be My Neighbor, the Mister Rogers movie, and I think you should see it. He & I would like you to know that you can love and you are lovable. We’d also like you to know the power that you possess, that we often pass off as mundane. Your smile can create another. Your voice can create conversation. Your insight can draw parallels between others who may not...

I was taking a nap and could've sworn I heard the sound of loud crackling fire. I was scared to death, thinking about how in Texas we'd had these heat waves, heat advisories, 100 plus temperatures, and fire threats as well as fires in the state due to not having in rain in. My grass in my yard as well as neighbors' yards had been dead for quite some time. What was going to...

My grandfather died when my dad was 14. His ashes were spread on a spot at a local cemetery. My grandmother never remarried and supposedly never even dated again. 40+ yrs later, my grandmother died. We spread her ashes on the same spot her husband was. Then, we went inside some building at the cemetery I didn't know about. Apparently, this is where they kept personal records for the...

I was biking on a trail in Boulder, Colorado. I had just got off work from a 10 hour shift, so I wasn’t planning on anything too strenuous. About 2 miles of biking down the trail I pass another group of cyclers, and almost directly after them, I see a key in the middle of the trail. I pick it up, and it’s a newer style Jeep key. I turned around and attempted to catch up with the group, but...

By Anjali Mohapatra on August 02, 2018 / 899 views

All stories are different from each other in respect of contents, words and themes too. These are few stories based in sixteen words exactly. Kindly have a look: Money, power and position are three most powerful weapons for the downfall of anybody in this Universe. Knowledge is the only property which increases its value the more you give, rather than decreasing. (by...

Banana is the favourite fruit of my middle child and one of the 2 fruits he ate together with grapes. When I came home from work last Monday he mentioned that a kid in school called him Ba-na-na! I kept on guessing why he was associated with Banana while he was not eating it in school. He then told me because of his jacket with a yellow hue. Everyday, by 6am my son and I were...

I remember the first time I was taken out to pick grapes and what an impact it made on my life at such a young age. My older brothers and sister had already received the call for duty, and this was going to be my first time out. Driving down the road in the early morning hours... I realized that the sun would soon make an appearance…an appearance that would preface an imminent heat, a fervent heat, a...

By C. Tacke on July 26, 2018 / 781 views

By C. Tacke on July 26, 2018 / 781 views

First I'll give a little back story. Today I was sanding the roof of my truck to bare metal so I could paint over it. I couldn't reach the entire roof from where I was positioned, so I decided to loosen the bolts holding the cap on the bed of my truck down so that I could slide it back. That would allow me to stand in the bed of the truck and reach the entire area of the roof that I wanted to sand....

I don’t like to dust and only do so when it is absolutely necessary. Yet, with the summer fans blowing and the dogs shedding I found myself working my duster the other day wiping dog hair and dust off the pictures hanging on my wall. I was going as quickly as possible trying to get it over with. In my haste, however, I knocked one the pictures down. I managed to catch it before it hit the floor....

By Xenatona on July 16, 2018 / 1,656 views

True self-love is not selfish pleasure, but rather the origin of discipline and willpower. Self-love is not giving yourself everything you want, but rather giving yourself the things that are good for you. Spending the weekend eating pizza and watching movies can feel great, but that is not self-love. Self-love is discipline. It says, “You may not like this, but the future You will want to start...

Was at the grocery store a while ago and overheard a conversation between a young couple. They were trying to decide how much more they could spend this week. As I walked by, I could see new wedding bands and listened to her ask him "do we have enough to get this too?" His reply was "do you have enough gas in your car til Friday". I've never had a flashback so vivid, to 20+ years ago,...
