She wondered slowly around the park, deliberately stopping every fun minutes to stretch our her arms and then fingers and breathe in the air. He ruffled skirt moved ever so softly with the breeze. The smell of sweet times long gone, the only remnant a shy echo drifting through the air…Posted By yetihk On 05.31.2011 @ 7:38 am
In imperial palaces during the Ming dynasty, it was common for nobles to play with jade carvings arranged in a rectangular board. Over time, this evolved to what we know of as modern Mahjong. What once was restricted to the elite subsequently spread through all of society, from rich trophy wife down to noodle seller on the street.Posted By yetihk On 05.20.2011 @ 7:39 pm
He put down the phone, confused and frustrated at himself. He was a grown man, an adult specimen of the species, surely able to control his urges primal instincts. Yet he found himself sorely tempted by her sultry tones and wicked laughter. Things wouldn’t be the same from now on.Posted By yetihk On 05.17.2011 @ 6:03 pm
There lies a whole sea of abandoned lives. Not on purpose mind you, just lost and unable to be rescued, back into the warmth and comfort of the present. Oh this doesn’t happen nowadays, with advanced location technology and retrieval at the snap of a finger.
This doesn’t help the forgotten ones though. We think of them and lower our eyes in silent respect. The colors they used to bring to life, hidden.Posted By yetihk On 05.15.2011 @ 4:25 pm
A tropical oasis, a place filled with life and activity. Breathe in the smells, the vibrant soul of the wasteland. Dismissed as a pile of trash by the overlords, it gave rise to a new hope for the millions of impoverished, a virtual gold rush for the poor yet eager hordes.Posted By yetihk On 05.13.2011 @ 12:04 pm
Her life of late had eased into a comfortable rhythm of work and friendships. Ever since moving to Utah, her previously chaotic life of personal dramas, destructive relationships and confusion about direction had been replaced by a calm relaxed constancy. For the first time she felt she could exhale and enjoy.Posted By yetihk On 05.11.2011 @ 10:39 am
I want a console for my emotions. A dashboard to track my daily ups and downs. Just like in a car, I could know when I need to fill myself up, when I’m running too hot or going too fast. A console to be by my side, be my trusty companion through the task of life. A product idea?Posted By yetihk On 05.10.2011 @ 11:49 am
He peered over the counter at the shy young man before him. The man shuffled nervously, wiping away his curly locks from his slightly sweating forehead. It had only been a week since he received his license request, but after some consideration, the officer gave him the benefit of the doubt. “Waver granted. Be careful kid.” The kid’s first reaction was one of relief, then of determination for the mission that lay ahead…Posted By yetihk On 05.07.2011 @ 8:55 pm
It was a new service, introduced after the galactic wars of 3140. The serreti people, struggling to rebound after the devastation on their land and budgets turned to post-apocalyptic tourism. The first initiative was the so called “eyeliner” tours where passengers were whisked down to eye level of the front lines of the conflict, to witness the destruction first hand.Posted By yetihk On 05.06.2011 @ 10:03 am
After his initial “near death” struggles in the gym, Roy noticed huge gains in fitness, endurance and speed. As the coaches looked on knowingly, he ramped up quickly towards the level of the other athletes. Yet after some weeks, as it seemed he was getting in a groove, the graph slowed down and his performance hit a plateau.Posted By yetihk On 05.05.2011 @ 9:36 am
I live in a trailer. Well, not really. But sort of.
Actually I’m living in a motel, just above trailer level.
And although it’s budget, it’s fine with me. Simple, a bed, shower and lots of California sunshine. I really can’t complain about it.
A trailer life really isn’t so bad for the soul.Posted By yetihk On 04.27.2011 @ 10:25 am
Ironing the sheets, he stopped and thought about his life back in the army. It didn’t seem much different, long repetitive drills, going through the motions. Here he was just on 5 years later, back into civilian life – wife, kids. Yet part of him yearned for a simpler time without thoughts on the mortgage or credit card payments.Posted By yetihk On 04.23.2011 @ 7:01 pm
Foreign people brings up two different images in my head.
Arrogant foreign devils who ignore local culture, act with sense of entitlement and make no effort to fit in. yes, I admit, I was one of them.
On the other hand, foreign people are interesting, different and give a different perspective to our world.Posted By yetihk On 04.21.2011 @ 7:35 pm
