"See you tomorrow," I tell him. "Pinky promise?" He says, every afternoon when I walk him to the bus. After a quick lock of our pinkies, 12 more hugs (approximately), and a reminder that you can't kiss your teacher, I send him home for the day. "Love you, Miss Hollis!" he calls out over his … Continue reading Pinky Promise?

Oh, the judgement... the ridicule... or … Continue reading Naked… Or Something Like It

It's not like any coffee I've ever seen, touched, tasted, or brewed. It's a strong, frothy coffee and the texture is almost like baby powder. Or, shall I say it? Dirt. So, delicious … Continue reading The coffee pot of my soul
