Love to find the moral dilemma in every situation. What makes a good decision. How close can someone go to the dark side of their personality with out losing their soul? Just random good versus evil stuff.

Vignette on the dock
"The Salt Life" by GWHARGIS

He squeezed his fist and felt the skin on his knuckles stretch. They were coated in salt from the ocean. He brought his hand to his mouth, touching his tongue to the worn skin. It was salty, like the bottom of the bag after all the pretzels were consumed.

His boat was a patchwork of repairs. But she was a beauty in his eyes. She had weathered N'oreasters, squalls, drunken meeting with the dock.

He tightened the rope and gave it a final tug. He blew a kiss to his lady and started down the wooden dock for an ice cold beer.
