By Joseph J. Mazzella on September 03, 2018 / 1,394 views

I realized something this morning. I have been writing now for 34 years. It all started when I was just 18 years old. As a boy growing up I had read literally hundreds of books. I had read mysteries, histories, Science Fiction, thrillers, text books, and the Bible. I had read on every subject I could. I had a thirst for knowledge that seemingly could never be quenched. Then suddenly I found that I too had...

Betty Thompson, a longtime resident of Rose Villa, has always been one to shatter stereotypes. In 1943, she fearlessly joined the Marine Corps at a time when women were needed most. Not only did she train male pilots how to fly – a task that at the time made men uncomfortable – she quickly worked her way up to lead the ranks. Obtaining a leadership position in a short period of time was not only...

"Stocking up for Winter?", said the cashier with a smile. She was looking at my shopping cart which was full of toaster pastries and big boxes of cereal. I knew that question was coming. A little earlier I had stopped into the local food pantry to see if there was any small thing that I might contribute. The shelves held canned vegetables, canned tuna fish, boxes of macaroni and cheese, and many...

Yesterday I found $8 on the ground while going to buy groceries from the local outlet. That $8 made my day and helped pay for my dinner. But it also got me thinking, whoever lost that $8, probably had a bad day. So I just want to say I hope my happiness and gratitude comes back around for...

I was just about to take a bite of my mozzarella sticks when my brother called me to let me know he was out of his appointment early. Starving little me decided it was a good idea to drive and dip my sticks into the sauce all the while watching my gps, so of course something dumb was bound to happen, as it did. I hit a curb on my way out and I guess it was bad because I immediately felt the car weigh down and...

For the past 33 years I have lived and worked in Africa, far from my mother who lived in Los Angeles. One night I dreamed of her as she slowly walked up the stairs to her apartment. She was a heavy woman and she walked slowly and painfully, as she reached the last step, she looked up at me and said "Baby, I'm not going to make it, I'm just too tired." The next morning I got a communication...

"Jamie, I can’t tell you how fortunate I felt that our paths crossed when they did. It is so rare...

I've been suffering from dental pain all weekend and can't afford to go to the dentist. None of the homemade toothache remedies are working. I don't know why, but something inspired me to grab this small teddy bear that my birth daughter's adoptive mom had given me when she was little. It's white and has a t-shirt on it with a picture of McKenna, my birth daughter when she was in...

"Please God let my son be normal!" I was a young Father. My first born son had been diagnosed with Autism two years earlier. His speech wasn't developing right. He had many repetitive behaviors. Often he would cry for a long time for no reason. My daughter who had been born two years after him was developing normally, out-pacing her brother. My wife had been content with just the two of them but...

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...

Feline Fire

By Terri Rimmer on August 10, 2018 / 2,236 views

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 any rain in a while. My grass in my yard as well as neighbors' yards had been dead for quite some time. What was...

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...
