Mending Fences (4 Stories)

Loading Share Buttons...

From childhood we’ve learned that part of life is losing and misplacing friendships,  and then making efforts to reunite and make amends.

Some friendships break up over disagreements or wrong choices - real or perceived - that are made.  And sometimes life just takes you down different roads until one day you meet again.

Do you remember a friendship lost until the two of you managed to patch things up,  or managed to track each other down after many years,  or across many miles?   Or are you still hoping for that to happen before it’s too late?

My Real Estate Story (3 Stories)

Loading Share Buttons...

We all have a real estate story — the house you bought for a song or that great rent-controlled apartment with the river view.

Or the fixer-upper that milked you dry, the roof that leaked, or the sink hole in the backyard, the noisy upstairs neighbor you took to court and the landlord or the tenant from Hell.

Or that lucky day you found your dream house!

Pain (5 Stories)

Loading Share Buttons...

Surely we’ve all had pain in our lives — both physical and mental.

By definition pain is an unpleasant sensory or emotional experience associated with actual or potential damage to one’s bodily or mental health.  And because pain is an individual and completely subjective experience, no two people respond or tolerate it in the same way.

What kind of pain — either physical or emotional — have you endured? Was it alleviated? If so, how?
