Sharing my World – August 20, 2018

I'm still running a week behind. Here are my thoughts for August 20. Which tastes better: black or green olives? Kalamata Olives. They always seemed purple to me. What’s your favorite room in your home? The one that I've recently cleaned. What fictional family would you be a member of? Hmm... I'd be Weasley. What... Continue Reading →

We Are All Stardust: Part 6

THE NEXT MORNING I scoured the bathroom for any signs of Fatima's murder. Not that I thought there would be.

It had been too long since she'd been to the ocean. She'd leave when she was ready. "Maggie! Don't make me... Continue Reading →

Digital Divide

LIBRARIAN LIZ IS IN THE HOUSE YESTERDAY, FORBES AUTHOR Panos Mourdoukoutas wrote an article dismissing the importance of libraries. He suggested using Amazon, Netflix, and Starbucks instead.
