My cat who just had to guard the wrapping paper so no one could get it … all night. For the weekly photo challenge.
My cat cuddling her tail, with a toy mouse in the foreground for the weekly photo challenge. [Yes love, my cat]
The music is intense, deep and dark. There is a sense of sadness in it, a sense of disdain for the strange man in the mirror. But looking back at the […]
Holidays always brought mixed emotions for me. Imagine being overweight, abused, and basically kept from the outside world. But a few times a year the curtain would rise and the […]

The glass was stained with blood, peering over the top I could see my wife. He had her tied, she was helpless. We both knew better than to trust people, […]
