Exploring Thanks

It's been a little while since I've posted any thoughts or random musings, I suppose that's because my inner-journey has taken a turn, and gotten much deeper. Of course, I could talk all day about the hypocrisy of cannabis laws, the judgement of others about cannabis use...and so on. But today things are different to … Continue reading Exploring Thanks

Wake & Bake Think Tank – A Donut Realization

It was about midnight when I woke up from falling asleep way too early. I smoked my favorite Indica and proceeded to meditate in an effort to relax and drift off. Instead of drifting, though, I found myself thinking about the things I love, and then realized I was in a corridor lined with doors. … Continue reading Wake & Bake Think Tank – A Donut Realization

The Chemistry of Tears

The Muse, of which there are two - (Artist: Aya Kato) And from my fingers, the words bemuse - Her chilled fingers calmed the pooled blood of battle and she reveled in the brief relief behind her swollen eyes. It has never been said that Eve did not cry. Yet the storm can only build … Continue reading The Chemistry of Tears

Threads of Backwards Honesty

If the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words," originated/was popularized with advertising, then it seems only natural to look at advertising and see how many words it inspires.

Proverbial Inspiration

It's long been stated that a picture is worth a thousand words, although not as long as you would think. A quick glance at Wikipedia credits this saying to the early 20th Century advertising strategy, although similar sayings date back to the 18th & 19th Centuries. Whenever the origin, the sentiment is the same - an … Continue reading Proverbial Inspiration

Sins of the Father – con’t

The wad of money bulged in my pocket. It was a modest sum, but in this time, it was a fortune. I knew it wouldn't last long, but at least it would help carry them through the years my father would be away at war. Between my contribution and my father's regular installments from Europe's … Continue reading Sins of the Father – con’t

Cage of Souls Revisited

Well, I've apparently run out of steam, after only a few days, mind you, on telling you my story. It's not that I couldn't face the facts of my reality, it's just that amidst the rape and intrigue, I've realized that my life is just not that interesting to me. It's just "life." So, the … Continue reading Cage of Souls Revisited

The Adulteress

Continuing to write fiction...one day at a time.  If I were a different type of person, I could likely find a reason for such treason. I could blame my parents for being too strict, perhaps, in some cosmic sense, I'm to pay for the sins of my father...and maybe even the sins of my mother. … Continue reading The Adulteress
