Kickin’ Off a New Week
Many of us approach Mondays in one of two ways. We take a laid back approach so we can recover from a hectic weekend. We move around our tasks a bit slower because our minds are still recalling the adventures of the weekend. And then they are other folk who take a manic stance on Monday and try to put “all the ducks in a row” with a listed, written plan so we can check off completed tasks as soon as possible because those responsibilities are plaguing and causing turmoil in our minds.

This excerpt is from the opening to her story, “Scratching the Surface:”
The shiver pricked along my arms as we touched down at the Honolulu International Airport in the middle of one those almost-too-sunny June days that comes just after a thunderstorm. The kind of day where everything feels fresh, new; at least, I’d heard they were supposed to feel like that. There was this mist hanging around that the sun shone through and made rainbows in over the wings of the plane. While we were circling the island, prepping to land, Molly pressed her pointed, little nose against the window and looked out at the patchwork of darker and lighter blues made by the reef. Every once in a while a wave would cut across the quilt, leaving a long white scar wherever it broke.
