Quiet Hugs

Morning and Muse often arrive together. Today their light cast long shadows across the wood floor. The house was still. Up before the others I sipped fresh coffee from a white cup. Quietly the glass door to my home-office opened. Carly’s head peeked in, her blond hair looking, as she often does in the morning, like Phyllis Diller’s. She climbed to my lap, reached and sipped a nip of coffee and rested her head on my shoulder. And there we shared a long quiet hug.

I Know What Love Is

mendizzaI Know What Love Is...

‘I love you, darling.’ ‘I love you, too.’ I love Pixel the cat. I love radiant sunsets, trees, grass, turtles, the way the ocean splashes against the shore. I love baseball, beer, good movies and trashy novels. Yes! I know what love is.

In ancient Greece Helen of Troy symbolized the prized possession of love that brough disaster to those who tried to keep her. A stolen bride is given in marriage to a wealthy Spartan king who wins her in a contest. Later she is carried off by Paris, the Trojan prince, an act that launched a thousand ships and a ten year war complete with a wooden horse filled with hidden soldiers.
