I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?

House of Mirrors

Another day in this house of mirrors, the hallways heave with amusement as your eyes are foiled once more… A trick of the light? A trick of the trade? A mind playing tricks? Turn here, not there, here… No cheese … Continue reading

Falling

Falling ~ The cities so far below, cloaked,  misted and uncertain, uneasy,  like a puzzle tossed carelessly. And we stood together, you and I, and talked of long histories made when the sky was newborn, and names had not been breathed … Continue reading
