Nightmare on 18th Street
The heavy damp vine hugged the side of my body, its leafy tentacles wrapping around
first my waist, then my legs. Heat radiated everywhere as I quickly became drenched in sweat. The weight was suffocating as
panic began to race through my veins and I…

…woke up to find my son snuggled in tight with his arms and legs entwined around my body.
His hot sweaty body hugged me full-length as he slept so peacefully. A whole queen-sized bed and the two of us are taking
up only a small space. I love to snuggle, but I’d rather not wear my child for my pajamas. No wonder I wake up feeling
tired! I think it’s time for a nap!

Fascinating people (other than me)
If you could meet anyone in the world,
living or deceased, who would that be? I’ve been asked this question before; I’ve also heard this asked of celebrities,
and, interestingly enough, both Oprah and I share the same answer: Jesus. My guess is many people would be in agreement.

if I had to name someone else, I find myself drawn to those people who experienced something profound yet were not those standing
in the spotlight. For instance, I would love to meet the pilot who flew President George Bush in Air Force 1 that fateful
September day when this was the only plane in the sky. This pilot was protecting the most powerful person in the world, not
knowing if more attacks were coming. What was he thinking? How does someone prepare for an experience such as this?
Does he have any regrets or wish he would have taken different action at the time? What did he do after he knew the President
about the limousine driver cruising along that Dallas grassy knoll years ago? Perhaps some historians know his name, but his
life, too, was forever changed by JFK’s assassination, and yet I have never seen or heard his testimonial.
to know who all my readers would like to meet or have met that you found fascinating. Feel free to share your story in
the comment section!

Tomorrow is my blogging anniversary - one year of blogging my thoughts, ideas and life stories. What a year! I've had a
blast writing - far more than I ever dreamed. In fact, the whole blog idea really came about as a dare from my supervisor,
and I wanted to prove to him I could do it. I guess I ended up proving far more to myself, with the experience reminding
me how much I enjoy writing.
I'm pleased to share I just purchased another year with my domain - in my first
year, I had 951 clicks to my site, so hopefully next year I can reach the 2,000 click mark. Here's to another great 365 days
