Description:

#Audio. #Prayer A series of advent prayers, for each of us, and for the world.

In this holiday season,
May the darkness of winter
Be dispelled in this festival of lights,
And may the darkness of ignorance
Be dispelled in the strength
Of compassion, reason,
And sharing.

TBM-1812.05 – DDOA-004 – My Darling and Clementines

Description:

#Audio. #FlashFic A woman and her husband share a snack of clementine oranges

Excerpt:

He’s eating the oranges one at a time, methodically peeling and sectioning each one, then slowly savoring each petite section. These tiny, sweet, citrus fruits are his latest addiction, and a welcome replacement for the near-constant stream of gummy candy that came before them.
