Showing Off, One-upmanship and Growing Up

Steve Kovacs

When do we grow up? At 21 years old? 30? 40? Or perhaps 50 or even 60? When do we start not showing off to people like an adolescent? Or at what age do we stop trying to be better than everyone else around us? Don’t ponder these question too hard because the answer, in many cases, is never. When I was 18 I thought I was an adult. But I didn’t feel much like one. As the years went on I still wondered when I’d truly..

Trains, Planes and Automobiles (3): Coast to Coast in a Day

Jack H. Schick

We were cruising down a two lane road in the 'Heart of the Mojave' region of the California desert. A big, diamond shaped yellow sign with a curved arrow on it was coming up fast. A smaller sign underneath it read: "20 MPH". I glanced down at the digital speedometer on our rental car and saw that I was doing 93. Naturally, I braked pretty hard. I was going closer to 50 than 20 when we went into the corner, but we made.

Eve Who Art Thou?

Ella Camp

There have been stories throughout time that have wanted to be told; and yet, the intolerant temper of the times did urge the storyteller to the couching safety of the metaphor, parable and fairy tale; which we are now left to decipher through the glass darkly. In this certain time and place- a place as yet unknown to earthly human senses; in an instant before time was marked on this miniscule uncharted world in the furthest reaches.

Do You Believe in Easy?

Jeanna Gabellini
