  1. Hmm, maybe it will work this time. It’s Chae’s dad. So Kendra recommended to this page during a conversation we were having about literature! I can’t wait to read this story. I write as well but am to cowardly to publish.

Love Lifted Me | #365 Prompts

LOVE LIFTED ME We’d practiced "Love Lifted Me" in GAs until it sounded reasonably good. Well, Anna sounded good. I suppose it was expected since she was the preacher’s daughter and honestly blessed with an angelic voice. She carried any number the trio performed. This time, however, it was a quartet. The choir director had reluctantly invited me to join—I guess she felt it was her moral duty to include me while knowing I couldn't sing.   But I would do for a Sunday night service when the pews were mostly empty. I wasn’t nervous really, even though I’d never sang in front of an audience. And I had forgotten about my bouts of hysteria. Now, these little fits weren’t debilitating.

Tragically, her signature walk, that strident march, leads her nowhere.

May Reads: Not a Lot

I was a mess this month — moody, unfocused, restless. It felt like every day was a full moon. My mindset affected my reading, and I quit three novels. I didn't love the other two I finished.

My attitude has been adjusted, and I'm halfway finished with a pretty good book! I'll tell you about it next month.
