Sitting Zen and Killing ClutterA Short Story

In Sitting Zen and Killing Clutter, Carol Quinn is reeling after her husband left her. She’s closer to 60 than she feels comfortable with and she is suddenly adrift in a world she cannot accept. Her best friend, Blondie, has a solution. Carol has to get out of her house and out of her slow descent into depression.
