My Mouth is Zipped – prompt from the Daily News (non-fiction)


Tell us about a thing you’ll never write about.


The thing that I will never write about is the details of my experiences with wife-swapping and an open marriage. This is something we withheld from the children and our regular friends and besides it is not the kind of thing that belongs in a public journal type blog.

I did bring this up briefly in the story of the break-up of our marriage, but didn’t go into details except for the one who broke us up. The rest is not necessary to be publicly known.

There were some good and bad parts about the experience and it eventually led to the breakup of our marriage. I do not regret this experience, but I wouldn’t recommend it to others who are trying to mend a broken marriage.


5 days, 5 photos. Day 5

The Rules: The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Thanks to HBHATNAGAR for doing this post and not nominating me. 🙂    I said I’d give it a try and here I am!

I’ve decided to forgo nominations this time. I’ve bothered people enough with nominations. So give it a try if you haven’t yet and want to. Heck give 2 tries if you want to.

This is a picture of my silly cat, Sara. Afraid of people and animals.


This is my kitty,

She is afraid of people.

Run, kitty cat, run!
