Defeating Death For A Day, Just For That One Chat

If you could bring back someone from the other side of the rainbow bridge for just one day, would you do that? I thought long at this question. Would I? I am not an overtly emotional person. The practical tag suits me more than emotional but I guess I would bring someone back from the…

What Was He Standing Between?

I Smell A Memory

Do you have a smell memory? Every time I buy a used book, the first thing I do is part it in the middle and tuck my nose right in. Taking in the smell. The smell of all the hands it has changed, all the places it has been to, all the stories it has…
