When I read that Sasee was expanding its circulation to include Boca Raton, I settled back into my chair and let the memories began to flow. Good ones, like running down A1A and through South Inlet Park while training for the Disney marathon, attending Ballet Florida’s yearly production of The Nutcracker, watching the rich and […]

Late Start

By Susan Harvey

Earning a college degree increased my confidence more than any other single life experience. At age forty-five, I decided to go to college. My two daughters were in college, I was newly divorced, and wanderlust struck, so I applied to the University of South Carolina in Columbia, my hometown, and ran home to my mother. […]

As I recently lay in the chair at my orthodontist’s office, I had one thought on my mind and it was this: “What in the heck was I thinking?” Oh, don’t get me wrong. I wanted braces! I needed braces! I’d longed for braces for most of my adult life. Two crooked little teeth – […]

There are certain things I feel that God short changed me on when She was arranging my genes. I can’t sing worth a sunken ship, my thighs are genetic mutations of the California Redwoods, and my right leg is an inch and a half longer than my left. Those are just a few of my […]

It was a warm sunny Friday afternoon, one of those perfect fall days that we get here in the Carolinas. The kind of day convertibles were made for.

All the birds gathered: sparrows, owls, eagles, and more, including one tiny bird whose name nobody knew. The gun sounded and […]

Believing and Other Reverse Truths

By David Krueger, M.D.

I threw each of my small children into the air, knowing gravity would send them back; they were confident I would be there to catch them. Each toss of this exciting game of catch was a few grains of sand and concrete in the foundation of a feeling later to be called trust. Would those […]

By Elynne Chaplik-Aleskow

It started as a typical first class of the new semester. Twenty-five faces were starring at me with the fear of college students who would prefer to be anywhere in the world other than a public speaking class. As I looked back at them with all the empathy I could express, I asked that everyone […]

I’m a list person. I have a To-Do list for just about every aspect of my life. I have a list for chores that need to be done around the house. I have another list for tasks that need to be accomplished at my job as a kindergarten teacher. I have a list of things […]

I was talking to another writer recently when we began discussing what gets our creative juices flowing. The choices would seem obvious: a beautiful nature scene – say, a rainbow after a summer shower, mellow music that you play over and over until your mind replays it over and over without the CD (ack!), mastering […]
