REFLECTIONS ON A RAINY DAY

I watch as the steady rain, falls softly. The air inside this place, sticks to my skin, more than I am comfortable.   What is this barb in my heart that twists itself a little deeper on days like this?   Is it the memory of me as a child, in a different house, watching orange lightening flash across the sky, while thunder made the … Continue reading REFLECTIONS ON A RAINY DAY

 THE THOUGHTS THAT WIND THE CLOCK

Years ago, when I would still be considered a child, my memories remind me of an old face. But this face had no wrinkles, years old and very familiar, it was set flat, white and only had three lines across its face.

THE EMPIRE OF THE MIND

The empire of the mind can build castles in the realm of imagination. Building them in the real world is a test of true internal strength. Keeping to the patterns of the self can be difficult if the patterns of the world do not support abstractedness. So the mind merges because after all it cannot survive on its own.

THE COMMUNICATION OF SILENCE

Silence can say more than words and express more than action sometimes. She is not as expressive with everyone though. It is her choice and the listener’s. Her communication is complex but apparent to those with a mind that feels deeply. If we understand her we discover a new world that is in between reality and fantasy. Her communication can hurt or soothe depending on … Continue reading THE COMMUNICATION OF SILENCE
