A Bit of Beauty

A Bit of Beauty

The primary reason I took up this challenge this year was to get myself back in touch with my inner spirit. I needed to remind myself that no matter how dark things might appear … as long as there are those who continue to create, the darkness will never be ... Read More
Glow

Glow

To me, creativity is not a character trait but a separate force that each of us has access to. It is like an internal glow that radiates ever outward. How it manifests does not depend on the strength of the glow. Rather it is determined by the filters it passes ... Read More
Windows (an ode)

Windows (an ode)

It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. There is little doubt of the truth of this observation … at least for those who pay attention. I believe that we can rearrange the words a bit and express another, more subtle truth: ”“ Windows are ... Read More
Both … neither … everything in-between

Both … neither … everything in-between

I am writing a book. This is not news to some, an interesting fact to others, a meaningless mess of images to some others … and many other things to still many other people. Actually, I am writing several books, but THIS book … this book is special. It is ... Read More
Re-reflecting on reflections

Re-reflecting on reflections

My journey of late has become more metaphysical than physical. Who knew that would be the more painful adventure? I love mirrors. Well, to be more accurate, I love reflective surfaces. To me they are like gateways to other worlds; doorways to What If. They are spark plugs for the ... Read More
A hairy situation

A hairy situation

Today was the kind of day where I needed some pure silliness. The 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups often offers just what I need to wax nutty, and this week’s challenge worked well for it. The challenge: …the hairs on my arms stood up… On the surface ripe for a horror story or such, ... Read More
Just what I needed!

Just what I needed!

For me communing with nature is the ultimate restorative. Sure mankind has made many wondrous things, and much life and beauty can be found in the “civilized” world as well. But sadly no matter how stimulating the world of man can be, it is also always shadowed by mankind’s alternate side. Everywhere man touches has its beauty, but it ... Read More

The Song of the Pond

The other day, I did something I have not done in a very long time, yet something that should be a staple of my soul’s diet. I communed with nature for a bit. As many of my recent posts have indicated, I am struggling with a lot of things at the moment … all which ... Read More
Looking for … (an L post)

Looking for … (an L post)

I am in a rather weird place lately. Not so much my physical location. That has not changed and is no more weird (or not weird) then it ever was. I live in purgatory (a.k.a. suburbia) so not much changes here. Not much actually happens here for that matter. If one wishes to find signs ... Read More
A seed is planted

A seed is planted

The Queen of Faerie spoke, and her ethereal voice carried with the force of a winter storm, yet thrilled with the sweet music of spring. None in the realm could escape her words, even if they so chose. “We must have a herald!” she breathed. “The human world forgets us!” The Denizens of the Mists ... Read More
