CROSSROADS by Rick Haynes 

A tale in 4 parts. 

Part 1 

“Wherever you go, there you are, or are you?” A brief flash of anger vanished quicker than I could blink but it didn’t last long. “You may be as gentle as a lamb, and as busy as a bee, yet, do you know where you are g...

Needs Must by Rick Haynes

(with apologies to all poets)

I entered the store
