The Mercy Factor

We’ve all known someone with that special talent or quality that makes them stand out. Think NFL QB Tim Tebow, NFL Hall of Famer Dan Marino or Scottish singer Susan Boyle. It’s referred to as the x factor: an indescribable quality or a noteworthy special talent that sets them apart. […]

Half asleep, coffee in hand, I opened my front door early one summer morning to check the weather. While observing my pretty garden, I robotically stepped outside when I jerked back reflexively. There he hung … in all his blackness, red beady eyes glistening in the sunlight. One creepy spider […]
