Far and few

Tonight I decided to reflect on a few things. How many times, have you stopped and really taken a moment to reflect on the simple things in life that make you happy. Simple as a child’s’ giggle, a snowflake, stars on a beautiful night, or that moment that gives you a feeling of “Yeah that makes it worth it!”.  If we are lucky we have someone to share these moments with. So tonight’s blog is about enjoying a simple thing in life. Something that just makes you chuckle. Enjoy!

“Matthew said you were up. Why didn’t you call?”
“I am eating. I ordered the most expensive thing on your menu. And I don’t want it to get cold, so I am eating.”
“Broccoli soup is hardly the most expensive thing on the menu. Besides you don’t like any of the expensive things on my menu. You don’t like prime rib or oysters.”
“Why the hell would you want to eat that crap?”
“Well, they’re very romantic, and the oysters are an aphrodisiac—not that I need it, mind you.”
“Well, you still can keep them; I’ll stick with my soup.”
This had him laughing. It was good to hear him laugh. The times that Mani truly laughed were few and far between.


You know by the look in the eyes.

Tonight I decided to do another random post. I wasn’t sure I wanted to do this one, but I came to this particular part twice tonight. So, here it is.

The eyes are the way into the soul. They show joy, love, sorrow, and fear with little complication. How many times have you looked into someones eyes and known what they are about to say. Your heart sinks when you see the look of sorrow or hurt in those eyes you care so deeply for.  When I wrote this I tried to incorporate those feelings into words to describe that look.  So here this weeks sneak peek at Master of the Spirit.  ENJOY!

He set down the spoon and put his arms around my waist, pulling me in close. He nuzzled my neck and shoulder. And it wasn’t until he heard the soft vibrations that he looked me in the face. His eyes: ice blue. But a look of worry was set behind those enchanted eyes. His look was starting to make me nervous.
“Mani, please tell me what has put this—this look—on your face.”
When I traced the lines on his brow, he caught and kissed my hand.

On another note I have been asked to get pre-order addresses from anyone interested in purchasing the book when it becomes available. So if any of you are interested you can email me your mailing address and you will receive a flyer from Dorrance. Thank you to everyone for all the support. Have a great week!

Is he a friend, or is he more ?

I decided to introduce another character from Master of the spirit. Remember when you were younger and there was always the guy (or girl) next door. You were definitely friends but should you be more? What happens when you don’t feel the same way about each other? Lulu and Justin have been friends for years. His mother was good friends with Dede (Lulu’s mother). When is, enough, enough! How far should you let things slide before you end the relationship completely? Here is a glimpse of Justin. Enjoy!

We made the signs, and Justin sat next to me by the counter. I tried to avoid getting too close to him, hoping we wouldn’t have to do the “just friends” talk again. So far, it was working. I avoided a few instances by helping customers and by keeping on the move. It was about a half hour later that I heard the back door of the store open. I didn’t worry about it because there were only a select few who had a key to get into the back. I figured it was my mom coming back from her all-important meeting. But it wasn’t. And to my great relief, it interrupted Justin’s beginning of the “Let’s give it another chance” speech.

Hope you liked the brief look at Justin. There is so much more…….

The man card!

I was reading the blogs I follow this week and there is two on the same subject that has stayed with me. The subject is feminism. I don’t want to start a debate!!!! Although I will share my view on the matter. Women are different from men! Some women are larger than men and some are smaller. We are all created in a variety of shapes and sizes. No, personally I can not do the same job as a professional carpenter. I lack the size and skills. But, I can be the best dialysis technician that I can possibly be and the best writer to my followers. I believe that a man shouldn’t hit a woman, and a woman shouldn’t hit a man. Believing in being equal to a man shouldn’t mean that either one has to be superior. Its called compromise.  So, on that note my blog will be on Mani tonight and his Man Card! lol  It’s for fun, and is meant for enjoyment. So enjoy!

“I won’t apologize for trying to protect you.”
“I didn’t ask you to.”
Mani walked around and stood in front of me. I had been setting on the bed waiting for the talk about the dominance. We were going to have to come up with some kind of agreement on that.
“Then why did you leave the hotel and not do as I asked and come up here?”
“Your words were ‘to get my ass moving.’ So, I was going to head home.”
“You would leave here over this?”
Now it had to be said. I tried my hardest, but the tears were coming again. I guess today was a day for tears. When I looked at him, I wanted him to know how much it had hurt me when he treated me that way.
“You used the man card on me.”
“Damn it, Luann. I didn’t use it to hurt you; I was desperate to get you safe. There is a big difference.”
He got down on his knees and lifted my head so we could see eye to eye.
“Lulu, I would never use it in any manner that would make you feel like you weren’t in control. I am nothing like Master Nu, you know this.”
“I know, but it didn’t help matters. What would I do if something happened to you? Just like you, I wanted to be sure you were safe too. I could have helped you somehow.”
“You helped by getting out, so there wasn’t a chance for them to use you against me.”
“I still don’t have to like it. And the next time you do that to me, I am going to kick your ass.”
“Okay, next time you can kick my ass. If you can, that is.”

I hope you all have a great week!  Be safe and see you again next weekend.
