9/9/12 featuring Starting Over

Welcome sixers to another Survive&Thrive story on this beautiful Sunday as the days dwindle down.

Unaware of binoculars trained on her every move, Emily Kendrick runs fast on the hard-packed sand of St. Augustine Beach. Alone on this early morning, tears spill down her tanned face. Leaping over one hurdle and another, she stumbles and falls. . .and doesn’t get up. A lone runner reaches Emily’s side. Binoculars slam into the widow’s walk perch.

8/19/12 featuring Now What?

Welcome to another Sunday, dear Sixers, friends and readers. Please join me in another brief six about the widow Carly Evans. Her first encounter with her deceased husband.

excerpt:

A shimmer in the woods beckoned me closer, a shadowy shape I couldn’t resist. Without fear, I moved into the shimmering layers of silver white, gold and purple. Enfolded in the sparkle of white light heat rocked my insides, shot through every opening, poured like liquid gold from head to toe until a final pulsating hammered at my feminine core. I cried out for my husband, knowing he was with me. Slow withdrawal as my heartbeat returned to normal and joy filled my life even though the glow of his spirit faded.

Memorial Day. Only once a year. Not often enough to turn our thoughts and hearts to those who have served our country.

And now my friends, To Be Continued when Beth Malone meets the pool guy, Maverick.

excerpt: A muscular man knocked at the slider doors, tall and rugged in a denim jacket, worn jeans and boots. Beth unlocked the door to slide it open and he entered, his energy filling the room to bounce off the walls.

Is Doctor Malone here, uh don’t mean to be pushy but he always pays first Monday of the season.”

Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry as tears splashed down Beth’s cheeks in front of this stranger, her only confidante. “The doctor is gone, kaput, flew, the coop, like bye bye, hasta la vista, fare thee well, auf weidersehn, have a nice day.”

An awkward moment passed before he said, “I’ll take care of your beautiful pool.”

Welcome to another Sunday, dear sixers. Hope your week was  prolific and healthy. I look forward to your comments on

To Be Continued as Beth Malone struggles to regain equilibrium now the balance of her life has turned upside down.

excerpt:

In the shower, under the pulsating stream of hot water, Beth emptied an almost full shampoo bottle on short brown hair.  “I want my forty years back,” she whispered through tears choking her throat. Too much conditioner followed the abundance of shampoo as she braced trembling arms against the shower walls and sudsy water sluiced down her body.  Wrapped in a striped blue and yellow bath towel, she dripped her way over to the crumpled letter, stomped on it and walked barefoot to the small balcony outside the bedroom.

Shivering in the chill of a late March morning, Beth Malone surveyed the property as far as she could see.  The beautiful pool slept under a green cover soon to be removed and she’d swim every day in the heated water so warm you could make soup in it, Frank would say;  would—past tense.
