We lost power for fifteen hours. We sat in the dark talking and crying over our 2010 losses, so far. That was days ago.

Today, the sun is shining. The waters are receding. The temperature is predicted to hit sixty degrees. All of/… Read full post »

Marriage?

a short story

 

Why did my marriage kill my spontaneity? Why did I fall into an immediate routine of eat and sleep and fuck--sometimes--and work, and work, and work? 

Why did turning my relationship into a business partnership kill the passion? Was it because there wasn't that much p… Read full post »
