So, I’m happy to report that, after a little bit of an inspirational drought, I’m back at it. I’ve been writing quite steadily, and the second book in the Reflections of Shadow trilogy is shaping up nicely.
To those who were displeased with my last post, I’d like to apologize for the schizophrenic nature of this blog, but I’m still refining how I use this forum to express myself. So I’d like to preface this new post with a disclaimer. If you are not into whimsy, do NOT read on.
When I was in school, I was introduced to stream of consciousness. We used it as a tool to loosen our writing muscles, and as a filter-free way to express ourselves. I loved this type of expression then, and I’d like to dive into a little more, just for shits and giggles… Catch you on the flip side!
Tears of starlight stripped of life fall gently on the rubber wet from use and abuse it isn’t that there should be something greater said the lion often the cries of his inner voice are not heard they fall like the rain on deaf ears and the man that runs the machine refuses to account for something that cannot be considered practical or measurable it’s the plight we all share whether you believe it or not too often we step aboard this journey content to let the driver dictate where we end up but the driver doesn’t understand that sometimes the view from the window is not enough too long in the form can blister our senses until they can no longer tell us anything of the ethereal I lose my greater self it strikes me when I see men and women define themselves through a deity’s eyes when that interpretation is so earth-bound as to be ridiculously biased but time both focuses and unfocuses our gaze and it always will tell me she said quietly when did you get so serious I laughed and shook my head it isn’t the seriousness that’s the problem it’s the objects of mirth in between the faerie smiled then and clapped her hands then we’ll have to find your smile again I went along because a part of me had not forgotten the child wide-eyed with wonder at the big beautiful world if you can smile when no one is around then you’ll be just fine…
