Phoenix arising from the Ashes

Igniting an Unexpected Flame


Normal morning bagel run.

Saw him. He smiled, stopped & waited for me.

I was pleasantly surprised.

We walked and talked about the new building.

He made my day.

Still wondering what’s behind the smile. Why stop for me? Am I so special?

Little does he know that he has created a shelter of possibilities within my mind.

Perhaps there will be an Act II.

Shall I have pleasures once more or is this another sweaty middle-aged fantasy?

Hot Flashes need new memories.

Maybe I won’t have to eat myself into oblivion after all.
