The Longest Goodbye

‘Bye!’ I waved out of the window of my van as it trundled slowly out of the driveway. A grin split my face as I blew kisses at my family, lined up on the lawn to watch me go. I gave the horn its obligatory tap as I took off down the street, and that …

The Tattoo Tourist

Travelling around Australia has been so much fun. I’ve been here as a tourist for about three months now, and I’ve visited places all over the country. Cities, beaches, deserts and mountains.

He had watched his clan’s local artist sketch pictures of boats with chalk before, but seeing the …

View From Above

Kane whistled from beneath his hard hat, leaning against the steel girder he was supposed to be welding to take in the metropolis spread out underneath him. ‘Would you look at that view?’ he marvelled to nobody in particular.          ‘Pretty nice, isn’t it?’ came a voice from behind him. Kane twisted around as far …

Caught On Camera

I caught something strange on camera. Something that I can’t, and potentially don’t want, to explain. I’m not sure what I saw yet but whatever it was, I don’t think it was good. It is too much for my narrow-minded brain to consider and if I didn’t potentially see it with my own eyes, then …
