About Me

My photo
On a quest to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I enjoy conversation with good friends over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. If I could be anywhere on earth, I'd choose to be on the beach, in the moonlight, with my feet buried in sand up to my ankles.

I hear them whispering in the hallway. They’re talking about me. I’m the one in the sickroom. Other people are making decisions about my life while I narrate. I can’t pretend I’m okay anymore. The façade has crumbled and now it’s just me unplugged, uncensored, and uncovered, and strangely at peace.

I am participating in Flash Friday 55. This weekly meme is brought to you by G-Man, over at Mr. Know it All. The object is to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words. Come join us and link your 55 in Mr. Know it All's comment section. See you there!


  1. "unplugged, uncensored, and uncovered" Great line! And would you please lend me some of that peace? Thanks. I'm really enjoying your writing, Cee. Glad I found your blog.

  2. haunting relief to be undone and ok with it. nice 55!

  3. I like this a lot. Such is the fate of the very old, and maybe the very young too.

    I’m up here.

  4. reminds me of the hospital even tho we whisper the patients know.

    Great 55 and welcome!!!

  5. Forced honesty? If only they didn't lock people away for that.
