After a year of writing on Medium, it feels as if I’ve shared all I can share. I’ve summed up my life in over three hundred stories, and I’ve got nothing left to add.

Yet, some personal essayists have stories of abuse, infidelity, and disease not yet revealed after months, even years.

These people use pseudonyms and write accounts of events that their friends and family would accept or not.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
