Ready to Run…Again

I felt something peculiar while I was out on my run. Someone was watching me. I picked up my pace. I soon heard footsteps behind me. I looked but saw no one. Still, there was something following me, and I was scared. I looked down at the asphalt ahead of me. Sure enough, there were […]

The Capacity to Care

I teared up a little on the way to the dentist. I adore my dentist and his staff. They are professional and kind – the best of the best. I trust them. That’s why I have no problem going all the way to my hometown to get my teeth cleaned. However, even with their expert […]

It was full of potential and I would fantasize about owning and remodeling it. I thought about the offices I could renovate downstairs and maybe two apartments upstairs. The location was […]

Beautiful Things
