The Thing About You
We all face them, we travel through, we make the wrong turn time and again.
There are so many, no one notices anymore.
They are insignificant seconds of a day filled with stimuli.
Every day dozens, if not hundreds of people intersect your life, my life, our lives.
We brush arms and offer an apology with a slight gesture, not realizing the effect of this one act.
We smile or frown at exactly the right moment, creating a wave in someone's day or night.
We don't give much thought to the chance meeting.
Meeting, greeting, watching, stalking, needing.
It doesn't matter where it ends.
It only matters where it starts.

I believe growing up in a really small town gives a person a little advantage when it comes to the imagination. You need one or you go mad.
Needless to say, mine saved me. After it got me into trouble first, that is. That's the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.
I am happily married with two daughters.
I have two giant dogs, two savage cats, and a penchant for a glass of red.
Also, I drag my bread through the sauce. I can't help myself, bread is life.
According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn't going well at all. I would still head off to Hogwarts tomorrow and I suspect there isn't a single wardrobe I haven't crept into, hoping to find the door to Narnia. And don't even get me started on the King's Road, I get lost.
Fortunately, I am an international bestseller so I have wormed my way into a quirky or eccentric category.
Thank God for that.
