Just a note for all you horror followers: The next full moon in the Washington, DC area will be on Friday, June 13, 2014 at 12:13 AM according to the Farmer's Almanac. Should be an interesting night!

    Sarah rested next to Jason beneath an oak overlooking the lake as a soft breeze guided cotton-ball clouds through an azure sky and watched as their daughter sat in the cool grass making dandelion wishes.
    "I wonder what she's wishing for."
    "Probably an ice cream cone for lunch," Jason replied as he plucked one of the little weeds. "And what do you wish for—riches, fame, world peace?" he asked holding the fuzzy seed head in front of her lips.
    Sarah smiled, blew away the tiny white parachutes, and said, "Another day just like this."
