This is a place for hope.

I am delightful company!
Once upon a time this writer was a reporter/photographer and columnist for a large weekly newspaper in New York City, worked at the Center for Publishing at N.Y.U., worked at Kirkus for one whirlwind semester and eventually was an editor at Scholastic. After two very eventful years on cable television in New York City, this writer was voted off the island. Today this writer is a student and soon-to-be published author (all fingers and toes are crossed) living in reduced circumstances. She is ever hopeful and even though her stomach may rumble from time to time, she is usually somewhat reasonably well fed. Most importantly this writer is a recovering or former New Yorker, (recovering seems more apt), who is quite happily transplanted elsewhere. She blooms where she is planted. ************************ You can contact me at diaryofahopefulstarvingstudent@ gmail.com

Matthew makes his way up the plush, burgundy carpeted stairs to Isaiah's nursery.  Coming in search of Hope and his nephew, he has finally tracked them down in Joy's enormous home.

As he makes his way up, he can hear his nephew laughing and vocalizing with Hope, and hearing them together like that makes him smile in spite of himself.

Matthew stands just outside the nursery, not intending to eavesdrop, but needing a moment to collect his thoughts, he pauses there trying his best not to be affected by how they sound together.

When Hope starts to sing, he rests his head against the wall and listens.  After years of not hearing Hope sing and then hearing her unexpectedly like this, he stops in his tracks.

So sweet.

Matthew instinctively wraps his arms around himself as he listens, trying to steel his resolve to keep Hope at a safe distance.

But when Hope stops singing, Matthew knows.

He wants more.  Much, much more.
