Good afternoon friends and welcome. Thank you for stopping by last week for my review of Graysen Morgen’s ‘Mission Compromised.’
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the support you have given me for my blogs and my book ‘Awakened by Fate.’ Tomorrow afternoon from 2 – 5 p.m. CST I will be interviewed by the Facebook group The Lesbian Book Readers Club. Just click on the link below for the group. And please pass this on.
Things are going well for me and I couldn’t be happier with my success.
Here is an excerpt from the story. Enjoy
Jackie shuddered. After a quick debate, she decided not to confide in her. After all she didn’t know Lisa very well and didn’t want to burden her with her problems.
“Listen, the reason for my call was that I wanted to know what you were doing next Thursday. If I’m not mistaken, don’t you have that day off?”
“Well, I was wondering if you’d like to come over and see my sculptures.”
Energetically, Jackie replied, “I’d love to come over and see your work. Recently a friend took me to an art gallery and they had one sculpture artist.
“I just love working with plaster. Sometimes I paint them. Tribal looks are my favorite. I have a picture of one that I recently sold that I’d like to show you.”
“I wished it was next Thursday already. I know I’m in for a real treat.”
“It’s a date then. How about around 6:00 p.m?”
After Jackie hung up the phone, she went to the kitchen and refilled her glass. Plopping on the couch, she thought about her vision she’d witnessed of Lisa.
I wonder if Lisa is going to hit the big time? Why else did this come to me?
“I know, why don’t I try a meditation and see if anything comes forward,” she said aloud. She prepared.
It didn’t take her long to get relaxed, since she was already drunk. Closing her eyes, she began deep breathing. Soon the white glowing screen materialized. At first, all she saw were colored shapes. Then people started to materialize.
Suddenly, Jackie saw herself among the crowd. Loud voices and music were all around her, clear as day. The smell of beer and smoke filled the air. With awe in her eyes, Jackie looked amongst the people huddled in front of the Bowtie Club.
A group of people emerged from the bar and walked over to the curb. One person met eye contact with Jackie and gave her a strange look. Jackie looked away, not caring what it meant. Looking around, she recognized a woman whom she used to know down at the corner. Jackie moved in closer.
A chill crept up her legs, so she walked more briskly. Once at the corner, she met eye contact with her friend. However, the woman just kept talking like nothing at all. No matter how much Jackie waved, she could not get her attention. Disappointed, she turned to walk down the street. When she got to the corner, she turned and continued walking.
Out of nowhere came the loud barking of a large dog. Frantically, she bolted down the street as fast as she could. To her horror, the dog chased her!
I’ve got to get to safety, and fast too!
The next thing she knew, she was back in her living room and rubbing her legs, trying to get warm and out of breath. She tried to rationalize what had just happened and had no success. And then a dog reacted to her. Frightened, she left all the lights on and before she went to bed.
Until Next Time,
