Two Mothers: A Ghost Story Novella

Anna woke in a cold sweat, hands shaking. She had never had dreams like this before. Maybe it was part of the baby blues.

Thirsty. Did dreaming make people thirsty?

She went to the bathroom for a sip of water. She’d forgotten to bring a glass upstairs with her, so she thrust her mouth under the faucet and took a long drink. When she stood she saw a flash go across the medicine cabinet mirror.

Anna spun around, breath pumping out in spurts. There was nothing there, but the feeling that someone was watching her overpowered her. Maybe she shouldn’t have insisted Skip tell her that ghost story.

The Murder of Leopold Beckenbauer

Danny drove me to McClureville the Sunday before Leopold Beckenbauer was murdered. He didn’t have to do it, what with me asking for a separation and all, but he’s always been kind like that. He really does deserve someone better than me.
Asheville was thick with fog when we left that morning, and I felt as if the opaqueness were wafting into my brain, making me dull headed. Luckily, Danny didn’t say much until we crossed over into South Carolina, but when he did speak he trod over the same ground we had been covering for the past month. I watched as the trenches got deeper.
“Claire. I don’t want this. You know that, right?”
An eighteen-wheeler whizzed past. What could I say that I hadn’t already said?

How to Sneak More Yoga Into Your Life: A Doable Yoga Plan for Busy People

Then one day I began to realize that my yoga practice had started sneaking up on me away from the mat. I would find myself in Mountain pose while standing in line at the grocery store. I would automatically go into a seated twist if I had been at my desk too long. I instinctively altered my breath anytime I felt anxious or nervous. I found that five minutes were better than no minutes. And, in a pinch, even one minute would suffice.

Could it really be this easy to incorporate yoga into my hectic life? Could I count this as “practice?” Did yoga have to be a “separate” part of my life? The day I answered “no” to that last question was the day I started living my yoga. I now use every chance I get to sneak a little yoga in, no matter where or how busy I am. A little yoga is definitely better than no yoga!
