I was fascinated by the whispering walls at Grand Central. I stood at one end of the wall and a friend stood at the other. At first, I did not think I would be able to hear her considering all the noise that accompanies Grand Central Station. To my surprise, I heard her clearly and spoke back.

At the Frick Museum, I particularly enjoyed the religious pieces. The one that caught my attention was the crucifixion of Jesus, especially since I went during the liturgical season of Lent and approaching Easter. The golden colors brought the picture to life.

But if we think of dreams in terms of reality and see them up close they may look sharp or pointy and we may back away in fear. … More Living in New York and Always Dreaming by Christina Marini
BEEP. BEEP. BEEP.
The alarm goes off.
She is groggy and can’t stop yawning.
She slowly moves her cold fingers to hit the snooze button.

It feels like just yesterday grandpa and I were sitting on the porch of my suburban home. Just yesterday when he taught me how to ride a bike. Just yesterday when I learned to fly a kite or throw a softball. Just yesterday when I learned how to tie a shoe and play tag.

I look out my window and can taste winter on my tongue.
It’s snowing and I have the chills.
My nose is running and I just want to be under warm, cozy blankets. … More Chicken Noodle Soup is my Medicine by Christina Marini
