A paragraph from a scene titled, Do Right. The setting is a  fictional locale – Ardua Pier- where things happen Truth lies in a dream.   The dull blast of a horn signaled a ship entering port. He listened as waves lapped against the pylons. The high-pitched sound of a woman’s laughter rang from the neighbouring sugar factory.  From a warehouse loft, somewhere high … Read More

If only I could bring you back, start you over.   I’d tell you: ‘worth’ isn’t a tailored suit, a fancy car, or the next big deal.   It’s about the ones who sit with you in the dark, count stars, and hear you in your silence.   It’s about the ones who find you, dust you off, and blast the radio in your car. … Read More

Princess, The throne has tipped Let me help you find that crown ~ we stand united
