26: Morning Fog in a Quarry His regular morning jog took him right by the old Herschfeld quarry. The view was deceptive at that time of day because the fog would often rise only a few feet below the path, and one wouldn’t know that an ominous hole gaped beneath it for miles and miles. That void, sleeping under a thick white blanket, had taken quite a few lives over the years. Why hadn’t the state of California demanded that Old Man Herschfeld create a fence around the danger? Perhaps it was a bill pending in state congress. Occasionally, our jogger friend would accidentally kick a stone off the edge and hear the rock bounce echoed “CRACK, POP, –” and then nothing to follow as it fell under the covers and into the arms of

40: Good posture. Small steps, keeping your thighs together. Back steps are small brush-by steps. Never use thumbs / don’t squeeze the hands, slightly curl fingertips for contact. Knees slightly bent. Weight forward on the balls of your feet. Man’s right hand between the lady’s shoulder blades. Left hand waist level, neutral area. Lady’s left hand on point of man’s shoulder. Right hand waist level, neutral area. Ladies stay in the slot– Man moves out and gives her the right-of-way. Don’t look at your feet. Look at your partner and SMILE. Bodies should be slightly apart at a “V” position for basic closed position. In open position, stay close together, elbows should bend in an “L” shape. Keep your weight off your heels, especially when turning. Hand movements (cross-over, turns, etc.) start and end at the waist. Resistance, Resistance, Resistance. Dance on the “down” beat of the music. Dancing is easier with hard soled smooth bottom shoes. HAVE FUN – It’s just dancing – no more, no less. | Practicing His Turns

50: Desert Ghost We had long completed our tour. Few had survived. CPL Zongo had perished instantly with the discovery of a land mine not 20 feet from the air strip. It was a sign of things to come. We lost contact with base command and our GPS choked on sand. Lost, water deprived and scorched beyond recognition, 3 remained to wander the Tanezrouft for another 2 years before I returned to base alone. The base appeared out of nothing, over a sand dune like any other sand dune I had seen those past 2 and a half years. I arrived at the camp that night and saw a fire going. There were 4 people sitting around drinking licorice tea. Zongo was with them. He looked up at me and smiled, “Welcome back!” and handed me a mug.

64: Visions in the Lagoon It was during his daily walk along the marina. He told everyone he knew about what he saw- the Great Monster. But very few folks paid him any mind. After all, his track record for other things he had seen out there– alien space craft, mermaids, ghosts, pirate ships, Jesus, his son (God rest his soul)– were never confirmed by other witnesses. Old friends grew tired of his stories and mostly avoided him any more. Their pity for him and his loss had been worn down by so many stories, and so they would tell him to meet them at such-in-such tavern only to go to another. Over the years, his daily walks along the marina remained consistent, and every morning, just as the fog and the morning sun would meet and ignite one another, he would see something he forever struggled to describe to anyone who would listen.

70: Cool, Still and Inviting The water appeared still, cool and inviting. She took off her coat, socks and shoes before walking down into the lush meadow. The mud squished between her toes as she reached the pond. Weeks later, another traveler would find the socks and shoes a bit too small for him, but the blue rain coat was just what he needed.

94: Portable Bomb Shelter She had this reassurance, for reasons unknown to her, that if a nuclear weapon were to end the world as she knew it, a magical force field would suddenly surround her, and she would be protected from the blast. Although this did set her mind at ease a bit, she did hope that she was not the only one in the world with this sort of thing. And she also hoped that this other gifted person was a male somewhat her age with not too much back hair and who did not snore too terribly loud and also who did not have really stinky feet all very important when trying to get along with someone in a post apocalyptic social situation.
