Mixed Colors

Mixed Colors

Raven was one who hated anything loud and busy and his family was the loudest and busiest of all, especially during these cheery seasons. There were eleven siblings, ages ranging from three to eighteen, running about, parents climbing over their self-proclaimed monkey bars in order to finish dinner, and music playing to ward off the […]

Just For Christmas

Just For Christmas

Melissa’s heart raced so loudly that it pitter-pattered in her eardrums. She felt the softness of her slippers caress her toes as she tiptoed downstairs. She wasn’t supposed to be down at this time; her mother would give her a good lecture if she were caught in her soft nightclothes at the time that the […]

She Was Secure – Part II – Porcelain Rose

She Was Secure – Part II – Porcelain Rose

M turned her yellow-purple stained cheek away from Rodrigo Gonçalves, her husband of twenty miserable years. Lowering her eyes, she kept them focussed on his boots. Think! Think! Don’t allow him any incentive to lash out! Desperately, she needed money for Maria, the daughter he had cruelly thrown away. M concentrated on his leather boots. […]

Folk Song (No. 12 from First Term at the Piano, SZ 53)

Folk Song (No. 12 from First Term at the Piano, SZ 53)

My performance piece is “Folk Song” by Bela Bartok. The picture I chose represents the feeling of this piece.  When I play this piece, it’s like I am dancing with the music. How this piece goes from very soft and suddenly loud  makes it seem like I am dancing with big bright colors!

Of Foreign Lands and People

Of Foreign Lands and People

Of Foreign Lands and People comes from a collection of Schumann’s works aptly named “Scenes from Childhood.” This simple piece does evoke images of nostalgia and childhood wonder. It reminds the listener of a simpler time, when everything seemed very foreign and exciting. To a child, something new is something exciting, and often sparks further wonder […]

Adoptee

Adoptee

Since forever, they have been my family. For as long as I can remember I’ve always been their child, their sibling. We’ve always been together. As I ran down the streets, my eyes burning with sensation, the memories surged within me. The fun water gun battles by the lake every summer. The silly yet severe […]

Unlike Me

Unlike Me

Life with children is living with the greatest love. When we were trying to adopt a child, it seemed to take years to reach the adoption council after being taken from the court to the police station where we were fingerprinted, then taken to the doctors for checkups. Dear God, were biological parents also tested […]

Everyone began clapping. It was my 10th birthday party and the theme was cupcakes. My family just finished singing Happy Birthday, and in front of me was a two-tier cake in the shape of a giant cupcake. I had my hair down with two mini space buns and was wearing a cute little dress decorated […]

Clockwork

Clockwork

“Honey, tomorrow is Allen’s baseball competition. Please, he earnestly needs you there. You know how hard he’s been practising for it.”“If only time would be for sale. For a reasonable price, I’d buy it. I have a backlog of work to do. Oh! Dear, I’m earnestly hunting for balance.”“Honey, the kids need you. You have […]

Back Home

Back Home

Clive suddenly turned the corner. It was an unprecedented occurrence. He looked radiant. He was no longer trapped in his past. He didn’t look lost anymore. “Mr. Martinez, your father’s sudden recovery is a miracle. A wonder. He is glowing like the sun on a summer day.”“I was glad when you called me on the […]
