Bring A Little Joy To The World

The heat slapped us in the face as we enter, shaking off the drizzle from our sweaters. The air, not as unpleasant as I expected, had that institutional smell, a mixture of leftover lunch, sickness and aging. I smiled at my son as he awkwardly drifted to the chair in the back of the...

“I have so many fun things planned for us,” she said.
She always did.
Every weekend.
Boots.
“First we melt this big block of wax…”
Her excitement simply couldn’t be contained.
Scarf.
“Then, we’ll WHIP it! With the hand mixer!”
There in her entryway,...

Hybrid Rasta Mama

On the move this Christmas? How to make a home for the holidays…
