Conversations: “A Better Man” from Lost and Found

“Happy birthday, Emi,” I tell her, my voice strained as I try to read her.  She just glares at me blankly. “Yeah, it’s really happy, thanks,” she mumbles.  “You can’t just keep coming over like this,” she warns me as she opens the door to her apartment. “Well, then, you’ll have to start taking my […]

Conversations: “Have you ever been in love?” from Not Today, But Someday

“It was this girl,” he starts.  “She was my first, uh… well, my first,” he settles on the word that leaves no doubt in my mind as to what he’s referring.  I lean my head on my knees, facing him.  I try not to look surprised.  I guess, honestly, I’m not.  Something about him is […]

Read a book and save a whale!

A little over a month ago, I rediscovered my love for whales. I was fascinated in high school, but like a lot of things we’re interested in when we’re younger, I sort of left them behind. My co-worker introduced me to a documentary called The Whale, and I haven’t looked back. I want to devour […]
