Tales of the Phoenix City - Chapter 15
Lily’s project was simple. It came to her as she was forever writing about style and fashion and things that seemed strangely unimportant at times of crisis, yet that magically operated on people no matter what, even more so in volatile times, as if the height of a heel was the best saving board one could hope for.

Tales of the Phoenix City - Chapter 14
The boat was a bit rocky, the crowd, a mix of citizens going about their usual business and tourists exploring the city, all smiles, the flashes of their camera creating memories they will replay on rainy days to cheer them up.

Tales of the Phoenix City - chapter 13
The city was her haven, the slabs of concrete felt moist and tender beneath her feet, the piercing noises of every day life were the perfect symphony to her dreams. Gabrielle had taken to ramble through the streets whenever the political climate felt unstable and volatile, acting just the opposite of what everyone was doing. Instead of retreating home, she confronted the insecurity heads on, with...
I have always felt very strongly about the way women are being treated in this day and age merely for the fault of perpetuating the specie. In other words, pregnancy scares the shit out of me. It s not enough that us women have to worry about what being pregnant will do to our body, to worry about the mere act of giving birth (no walk in the park, I hear, as my father still remembers sometimes...
