she also broke beans


She was tired of being old. Tired of dressing head to toe in what use to be.

Memories of a mother. A husband. He’s my heart, and I’m gonna see him soon. A father that never really was.

Tired of not yet going where she knew she belonged.

Her name was Belle, and she would die soon.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for stopping by my site.

    I just saw a production. It gave glimpses of four different people who thought they only had 24 hours left to live and what they did with their last day. I think sometimes we always wait for the “future” to start being who we want to be. You never know if its only a day away, really.

    Not sure why your emails won’t go thru. Sejordan3@aol.com
    Excited to hear you bought “Crum”. I’d like to talk more about it with you. The write-up above is amazing. Less is always more, yet more challenging to write–but I’m impressed with your style, your talent, and your techniques.

    Hi Buffy! It’s been a long time. I saw you over at Stephanie’s … a small bloggin’ world. It’s great to read your fiction pieces online. I have been posting more of them too. Genre fiction to go.

    I don’t care if this is just a piece or whether there is more to come. Because the quality of writing is so precise, constant, true.

    Ann Marie
