I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?

I was really wanting more and then remembered you were only writing 50 words. Good stuff!
I tip my hat.
Howdy! I’ve just nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. I hope you accept.
I take a deep bow. If I win will you send me a fancy hat?
Go to my blog and see what’s involved. If you accept the conditions, it’s all yours. Paste the picture on your blog when you’re finish.
Nothing to it.
i like the way you write. “50 words” are very interesting. Please accept one lovely blog award. Again. (if you want)
That award is not half as lovely as you are!
Great story! I love flash fiction 🙂
I thought you were gone from WP because you haven’t posted much lately. More stories please! I like them much.
sad and sweet at the same time.
