‘Falling’ in love 

Kat paddled to stay afloat, her skin chartreuse-yellow in the deep, crystal water. Close up, Adam’s wet eyelashes seemed longer.

Male mascara.

“Jump with me,” he challenged. “Just from the cliff.”

Kat shook her head. No way.

“I dare you.”

I hardly know you, AND I’m engaged.

Taking in his wide grin, Kat’s treacherous heart was already jumping. Biting her cheek, she appraised the cliff from the safety of the plunge pool. It didn’t seem that high, not as crazy as the waterfall he’d just leapt off.

“Will it shut you up?”

“Perhaps.” His voice rode roughshod over her common sense.

Florence Falls - the jump Florence Falls, NT – the jump

A few minutes later they’d climbed to the ledge of the tapering, ancient rock formation. In truth, Adam climbed and Kat had scrambled. The initial ascent had been easy, but soon Kat’s leg muscles were straining for scarce footholds in the…

The Versatile Blogger Award!


Thanks be to both Patty from I Am Not A Sick Boy and Babus from Ajoobacats for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Here are the rules:

1. Show the award on your blog
2. Thank the person(s) that has nominated you.
3. Share 7 different facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 blogs of your choice
5. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.

7 Different Facts About Me:

1. I don’t like to wear makeup. I’m not taking a stance or anything, I’m just lazy and I find it difficult to understand why people want to wear makeup. My best friend tried to explain it to me. I’m still confused.

2. My favourite TV shows are Supernatural, Grimm, Orphan Black, and Once Upon A Time (favourite characters are Rumpelstiltskin and Regina – I find Emma boring). 

3. The only movies I like to rewatch are kids movies. These holidays I watched Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 1 & 2 and Paranorman.

4. I grew up eating cheese and crackers (and olives), and watching Wallace and Gromit. 

5. I don’t play as many video games as I used to. I used to love them, so I’m not sure what’s changed. Me? Them? I’m going with them.

6. I have gotten into asian-pop (kpop, some cpop, and jpop with some jrock), so maybe that’s become like a video games replacement? (2ne1, f(x), FLIP, Perfume, Tommy February 6, SPICA are my main favourites).  

7. I never wanted to get my license. Driving a car naturally terrifies me. I can drive because I have to, and I’ve driven in plenty of dangerous conditions (mostly because of my job, including reversing underground, up an incline, around a corner, with a dump truck coming up from the opposite direction) without having an accident, but I DETEST driving. It’s just one of those things.

Tell Your Story: a plea from Battered Wife Seeking Better Life. This is required reading, people!

Battered Wife Seeking Better Life

Domestic violence is a disgusting epidemic and I’m in awe of how many people are telling their stories.  It’s almost as if the stigma has been lifted.  Even though I know there are still multitudes that are living in silence, I pray their day to speak will come.  It is by far the most important part of our journey.  If you are one of the silent ones reading this…please, find someone you can trust…and tell them.  Even if it’s the only thing you can do at this moment – tell someone.

I had that chance.  And I stumbled.

I recently reconnected with my cousin who I hadn’t seen or spoken to in (too many) years.  I found her on Facebook and “friended” her to test the waters.  She had many issues over the years and I was a little unsure of just how reconnected I actually wanted to get.  We…
