An eclectic mix
A jumble of many genres
Many voices

Observation and empathy shape my stories and poems. Writing, photography, and art fill the nooks and crannies between home and family.

Chapter 74 of the book Tangled Webs
A horrific experience
"Captive" by Minglement

Ada awoke in the dark, disoriented, her wrists bound to a cold rail, the bedside phone useless. A notepad beside it bore a name and address. No!

Skeletal from refusing food in captivity, she slipped a bony hand free, grabbing the phone.



"Where are you?"

Dry lips croaked the address.

A cop appeared with a female captor.

"Ms. Rye?" He didn't move to free her.


"Restraints?" He asked.

"She's combative."


"Sorry," he said to his escort, "we're required to investigate."

"I know." The woman in white held a hypodermic.

He looked back. "God spare me from dementia."

Author Notes
This is a true 101 word story of my sister's experience in a rest home when she was not allowed to leave AMA (Against Medical Advice). It was heartbreaking, but a testament to her spirit. I don't know anyone who would call 911 in that situation. God rest her soul. Thanks to pinterest for the accompanying image and to you for reading.
