The courtier’s dalmatian bit the princess’ leg, in the presence of the king and queen. The monarchs were outraged.
‘Behead your cur and bring us its head. You have one day.’
All the courtier’s entreaties were useless.
‘Do as the queen ordered,’ the king said.
The dog barked.

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?

Zombie cat? Dear aunt…
I don’t watch TV. 🙂
