The Dance of the Christmas Chipmunks (Short Story) - 12/17/2013 10:07:25 AM
I found your charming story by accident a few months ago and waited until this season to share it with several friends on line to whom the original Chipmunks records are still a cherished musical memory. I've loved them since I was a kid, and believe me I'm no kid any more.

Nice story. Thanks for sharing

Nicely captured, Isharra. Felt as if I was there, dancing along with you girls. Well done! God Bless!

Such a sad write! Caprivating piece indeed. I'm going to write a poem based on this - if you don't mind Isharra - it's been a while since I wrote a poem so it'll take forever to compose! Lol. A well crafted piece!

I've only been to Chicago once to visit the Field Museum. Thank you for sharing another small taste of the city with me.

Beautiful write, Isharra. An absolute delight! Wonderful magical memories! By the way, ISHARA (note the spelling) means "sign" in Swahili.

Enjoyed this story very much even though it did seem to merge all together at times for these "old" eyes of mine. Nevertheless, it is moving and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to read it.

This is wonderful. I love it. It is true that those were magic days. The following year, though, all hell broke loose, and life was never the same again.

This story was great. I enjoyed it. A wonderful story about how twins are connected . I have three sets in my family and wished that I could have had a set of twins myself. Sad story, yet beautiful and very well written....seems like a T.V Lifetime story could develop from this...:)...great piece

Isharra, I'm waiting for chapter 2 with this one. . .
I also wonder if at any time you've thought of delving into poetry, because there are at least 10 beautiful topics for poems here that I can see instantly. Your memories are more precious when you share them as you have done here. I'll visit your column (having been a columnist myself) and look forward to more daring in both fiction and non fiction.
They're a lot of people waiting to be inspired by you Sis.
Preach on, and don't be shy 'bout it hurting a little, for that makes the best writing; that teaches the strongest lessons for others to embrace.

p.s. EXCELLENT opening paragraph!!!

Extremely delightful write, Isharra. I remember that Chipmunks record, too, and those glorious Christmas Holidays past in good old Chicago. Happy New Year to you!

Well go on then gurl! I enjoyed reading you...curves and all.

This is not only a wonderful read, but a testimony to your healthy self-esteem. It is always encouraging to encounter those who understand beyond the trivial. Good work!

This was wonderful and speaks to your self-esteem which is very healthy. God made us in a variety of shapes, sizes, etc. etc. It's time out for magazine models who are pencil thin and cause our young women to kill themselves. Spread the word...Healthy is in!!
Great job that should be published nationally.

This was too cute...and true...I know that we all would be goddesses somewhere...:) I too celebate the differences and the beautiful shades of African American woman...now if we can just teach our childre, especially our daughters, then we may make a difference......enjoyed it!

"Love is every shade of the rainbow,and no color at all."--excerpt "Shades of The Rainbow" and it should apply even to myriad sizes and shapes of humanity. Beneath it all, we are of one blood and one race, everything else is unique. Wouldn't life be boring if there were nothing and no one unique? Keep working at your writing, Isharra. Helpful hint: check out "Writers' Seven Deadly Sins" citing why rejection slips are prolific and contracts are rare. The article can be found amidst my A/D webpages. Hope to hear from you sistah.

Wonderful!!!!!!! More women should speak out. Instead of buying in to the latest trend to be a skeleton they should celebrate their curves. The truth is you just may not live longer being thin. Everyone has a time to go. If you're like me you'd rather have that lobster dinner with shrimp and enjoy it than to just have the package of crackers and a glass of water!
I recently heard from a man who's mother was obese therefore, he will never date an obese woman. Instead of having compassion and love in his heart he condems them. It's sick and sad! But this joker is single and will remain so hahahaha!! Meanwhile lucious ladies all around are finding true men to love and cherish them.

I wish I could have read your column in its entirety! A good introduction to what promises to be an upbeat, positive view.
You said, "according to society standards, I am obese." I've noticed that some tv commercials are now showcasing what they call 'large-sized' models... but these women are NOT what anyone would call fat, obese, or large. Society and its standards... phooey! Celebrate the curves! :)

unfortunately themestream folded before I had the chance to check them out. Nice profile. Look forward to reading more of the series.
