Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

She is an accomplished script writer and is currently at the #11 spot on the rankings.

"Turn the light off."

"I'm reading a real good story."

He reached across me and hit the switch. The room went dark.

"Hey, why did you do that?"

He didn't answer, but I felt his breath against my skin. His lips brushed my neck. He nibbled gently on my ear lobe. His tongue flickered across my lips, teasing me. He gently kissed me. He kissed me again with more passion.

A fire exploded inside me and I eagerly returned his kiss. Our breathing was ragged with desire.

He stopped. The light came on.

"Sorry, you can continue reading."

"Shut off the light. I like your story better."

a kiss in the dark
an uninvited guest
long thin legs
