Nice! There really is no clean way to do the pronouns. Some writers alternate between them but that can get confusing. My daughter's old roomie is "they" and we've agreed that it's past due time for a gender neutral, non-plural option!
I know very little about Thailand, so I love seeing your pics! Interestingly, that mall looks a whole lot like one here in North Carolina. But I really love that silly lock!
As for Paris, I think everyone who's been there has a few things for which to blame it. 😳
Driving is an interesting microcosm of the human experience, and frequently not in a good way. Many of us spend quite a few hours behind the wheel on roads packed with other drivers — i.e., other people — and yet all too often it seems to be everyone out for themselves. Driving slow in the fast lane; skipping the turn signal; pulling out in front of another car; blowing through a red light . . . all of these actions have become so common we barely shrug anymore. Some, I suppose, are because drivers are moving along in their own…
In the bleak beauty of winter
The barren branches all appear dead
But I am fine with that
Hovering above me like
Long lost ancestors
Their pale tapered fingers
Wrapping me in their shadows
In my youth, it used to be
The season made me restless
Too much time reflecting, waiting
Now I’m able to appreciate
The relentless blanket of greyness
Muting hints of treasured greatness
Putting us back in our place
Will this be the winter of our existence
Can we find a way to blossom again
Or will the trees take us home
Sandy put the buckets of bait on the deck just as the sun rose, and pushed the boat off the dock before starting the motor. She waited till she was a couple miles out before tossing chunks of chum in the waves. She enjoyed seeing the multitude of sharks circle round.
She headed back to shore and tied the boat up, rinsed the buckets in the ocean and put them away. Steve met her. “Where’s the hubby?”
“He decided to sleep in,” she said.
“Not here now,” he replied. “Guess we’re alone.”
She smiled and slipped her arms around him.
