The Lake of Living Water

Happy Monday!  As a teacher and writer, I'm thrilled for it to be summer.  I'm still teaching part-time, but fewer hours means I'm fully in get-Child-of-the-Kaites-ready-for-release mode.  I always feel the need to qualify statements about the future, as I have no idea what the next minute even holds, but as of now Child of the … Continue reading The Lake of Living Water

Though None Go With Me

Every so often, in going through piles of papers or forgotten computer files, I discover something that I had completely forgotten I wrote.  Sometimes this can be a rather disturbing experience--especially when I recognize my handwriting but haven't the slightest memory of writing the story.  Other times, it's just slightly unsettling and a nice surprise. … Continue reading Though None Go With Me

It is seven o’clock by the time I manage to escape. Two days ago, my parents and I boarded a plane at LAX, Los Angeles International Airport.  At least, I think it was two days ago.  Time gets a little confusing when you cross so many time zones.  We landed in Rotterdam in the Netherlands … Continue reading The Shadows of Kasteel Von Rhoon

Fugitive

The first thing I did this morning was go to the gym. That’s a lie.  The rest of the world thinks I was at the gym.  The first thing I really did this morning was assume a false identity and jump on a train out of Pleasanton.  The truth is, no one knows where I … Continue reading Fugitive
