By Joseph J. Mazzella on November 24, 2020 / 294 views

It was a hot, humid Summer day a few years ago. I had just pulled into the local gas station to fill my tank. After pumping the gas I started to walk inside to pay. That is when I noticed them. Two elderly women where standing back from their car. There was a mixture of shock, fear, and dread on their faces. I looked and saw what they saw. Five yellow jackets had started to build a nest around their gas cap....

On a recent cold blustery day right before the election, I was working as a volunteer to clean-up annuals around the roundabout at the Boothbay Common. A car I didn’t recognize pulled up right behind mine, and a woman I don’t know got out.

I had a new guy working for me once in retail who fell asleep a few times during his shifts. I had coworkers and customers both tell me they thought he was on drugs cuz he'd nod off right in the middle of something like that. When I talked to him about it it turned out he was homeless and he'd been living in his car and being harassed by cops for sleeping in it, so every night...

It was June of 1988. Out of a 13-year-old's early summer boredom, I had pitched a tent in our rural Virginia yard and intended to sleep in it, but I was staying in the house late to finish watching the Lakers’ play-off game. It was almost midnight and Daddy had been asleep upstairs for hours. Someone knocked on the front door. It never occurred to me not to answer it. On the other side was...

I make my Ramen the way a friend taught me in eleventh grade. Every fall, I listen to a playlist made for me by a boy I drove across a border to see. I eat sushi because a girl who won't talk to me anymore made me try it, and Indian food because my best friend's parents ordered for me before I knew what I liked. There are movies I love because someone I loved loved them...

And I was so scared of being alone, being gay felt like the hardest...

It was a cold, dark, November morning several years ago. My alarm clock had just gone off but I was having trouble getting out of bed. My Dad had died a few weeks before and I found myself just going through the motions of life. I felt weighed down by grief, sadness, and depression. I didn’t feel ready to go on without him. Short, stout, and strong my Dad had been my hero growing up. He had...

Yesterday as I was leaving the grocery store a man approached me and asked if I could help him pay for a train ticket to a city about 100 miles away.

Jokingly I asked him if OUR town wasn't nice enough, that he had to...
