Dum and Dee

The Mirror

I have a mirror hanging on my bedroom wall. R doesn’t like it. He says it’s a heavy, old-fashioned thing. It is one of those mirrors that hangs from a square-linked chain; the glass is framed in wooden gold, the edges rubbed from precious metal to dull grey-bown. 566 more words

“What time is it right now?  What day of the week or month?”  When asked these questions, most minds move to the familiar: cell phone, wristwatch, wall and desk calendars, etc.   206 more words
