Daily Prompt: The case of the perfect tan

 8/26/13- Daily Prompt: Ditching school with your friends to go to the beach with your mother’s car you come back after a glorious morning of perfecting your tan to find it gone… It was a Daily Prompt. I feared the worst! On August 27, 2013 I sat to write a blog and wasn’t quite sure […]

Daily Post: Nut Shell

Mark Coulbourn Rockport, MA 01966 Tel: (978) 546-2078 Email: <baka8@verizon.net><mcoulbourn1@yahoo.com>     Born in the US in the early 60s, I have been fortunate enough to travel the world, make more than a few mistakes, zip around and repeat the same mistakes. All the while, I have come to really appreciate books, reading and writing, […]

Daily Prompts: Writing my wrongs

Writing my wrongs. Abstraction. It was truly a one off. I guess it should have been considered as nothing more than “bothersome.” If I let it be more than that, it might become part of me. I should not, I should not have let it, become more than a simple abstraction, yet it evolved and […]

Population explosion? What could I do? I would […]

Creative Writing: The lovely oyster, the Pearl

Saturday morning. We were all getting ready for the big event. My little sister; her hubby, all the kids, who were no longer little (even the “littlest” was 6’5 and 210 lbs.: mostly muscle). My older brother, who was about ¾” inch shorter than myself, was there with his wife and kids. He beat me […]

Daily Prompt: Star crossed love of a shoe.

Star crossed love of a shoe. It all sounds rather silly that my wardrobe, my shoes in this case, have “love”, they have feelings whatsoever. Well, I was ignorant of these sentiments until, when…I believe it was last Thursday, no, it must have been Wednesday in coat zone; Wednesday, Eastern Coat Zone (aka ECZ).  Oh […]

Daily Prompt: Mythological mirror

Mirror, mirror…how and why do these damn cookies fall? I guess Mirrors are sort of like Oracles, yes? I am lucky that I am not wearing one of those mood rings. If I were, if I were wearing one of those mood rings maybe my head would pop off. Wait! That would have to mean […]
