The Cayman Islands Air Banner - Five - Sun on the Rocks

FIVE

Blond had the look of a man ready to surf to Hawaii from the Southern tip of Australia. He was so angry that Delemo had to empty a bucket of seawater on him several times, to cool him down.

The Custodians

 

The burden they carry results in a natural attraction to each other.  At times they flutter and mingle together as they once might have done before the Purge… if they were truly birds.  Drawn together, but smart enough to stay separated. 

They did…

Thy Perfect Light

Beneath kaleidoscope panes of martyrs and saints, Lucinda sat with her mother and grandparents. Waiting for midnight mass to begin, she studied a sculpture of Mary holding Jesus- a mother and her sacrifice. A bundle of candles made its way down the aisle, and she took a taper. When the priest solemnly proceeded to the front from the entrance, with altar boys and a deacon trailing behind, the congregation welcomed him with light.

Eying Lucinda critically, her grandmother whispered,…

It was his seventy-ninth Christmas Eve morning. He looked out his first floor apartment at the temperature gauge he had screwed to the window sill in late July. Making a few circles on the glass with the side of his hand to get through the…

Fiction Weekend: No Explanation

                 

       No explanation was possible. Not even if she’d been standing on the cathedral floor before them could Sister Marie Sebastian have explained what she was doing, floating up here at the level of the cathedral’s clerestory windows in one of the stiff little arm chairs from her…

FOUR

Clarity turned backwards and let Taimi zip her diving neoprene wetsuit, preventing Blond to cut his hands too deeply on her lower back. She was excited to take her first diving class in order to get the Padi diving license. She saw Buddha Talk tilt his head towards the right ear of Flower, dangerously tipping the bench inside the diving shop, and…

Movie Review: The Hedgehog

Over at Netflix, in their Foreign Film category, nestled like a small jewel between the better known, flashier favorites so many have come to admire, is a film I cannot get out of my thoughts. Based on Muriel Barbery's novel, The Elegance of…

CHECKMATE~

 

The Chessman
 
“The world says: "You have needs -- satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don't hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more." This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.” ff

THE STRANGE TALE OF A RANDOM CHARACTER

I have decided to revert back to my primordial madness which stems from my lack of understanding of anything relevant except to myself and the few imaginary friends I have gathered about.

The bus stops here, there, and down the street, picking up vagrants, the unwashed masses of ignored society, the sleepers, the dreamers, the American soul lost in a sea of acidic backwash from industrial giants.

I sat in the back, my hands in my lap.

I was singing inside my…

An Amateur’s Guide to Killing Your Darlings

            I have been writing a book for what seems like half of my adult life. The hardest part has been revising just as other writers warned me. I doubted it at first, especially when struggling to master dialogue and tense symmetry. I have sent my book out twice and instead of a ticker tape parade, I received big fat no thank yous that varied from the apologetic to the terse. A bit crestfallen, I put my book Mermaid away periodically to live life and gather strength to work on…
