Treat everyday as a new adventure

Teasers of Things to Come!

Throughout this year I will be working on a book featuring short stories and poems from pictures that I have taken, paintings my oldest son has done,  and the word prompts from my writer’s group. I want it to depict the four seasons, spring, summer, fall, and winter. So I thought I’d give you a little teaser of one of the stories and will post others about once a month. Ready?

Her Fate is His

     She stood on the sand and looked out across the bay. Waiting, wondering if he would show, she closed her eyes and felt the cool salt air brush the bangs from her forehead.

   He walked up and stood beside her. “Did you bring it?”

   She opened her eyes and looked up at him. His six foot two frame towered over her, making her feel small and helpless. Trying to hide the tremble in her voice, she whispered, “Yes” and stared at her own reflection in his dark glasses.

    “Let me see it.”

    “No. Not until you tell me where he is.”

    With a look of contempt he pulled a gloved hand out of his jacket pocket and pointed towards the pier. “He’s right over there.”

    “You did this on purpose. You kept me waiting until the fog rolled in. Knowing I wouldn’t be able to see him.”

    He avoided her gaze and stared out across the water.  “Let me ask you this, Are you sure this is what you want?”

Now that’s what you call a teaser! And if you want to see how it turns out, you’ll have to wait for the book, which I hope to have out by December 21, 2013 and by then I’ll have decided whether to leave it in the past tense or put it in present tense.

And just for fun.  Here’s my horoscope and numeroscope for today!

Daily Numeroscope: One
FRIDAY, MAR 1, 2013
It’s a brand new month and a fresh cycle is starting. You can’t get a better day than this 1-Day to get the action happening in your life. As a One, you are probably well known for your abilities to take the initiative and get things underway. However, it can be especially important for you to think these things through first before committing. A lack of follow through is something also akin to being a One. Provided the project you start is exciting and can hold your interest, you shouldn’t have too much trouble sticking with it until the end.
Daily Aquarius horoscope
FRIDAY, MAR 1, 2013
Are you living your dreams, Aquarius? Are you still in touch with them? The energy from today’s planetary aspects can lend strength and encouragement to this part of your life. Seize the opportunity to take hold of the things that you want most of all. Ask yourself what you want people to say about you after you’re gone. Get back on track to a fulfilled life by taking steps toward your desires.
