Excerpt from “Risking Truth”


There was a moment in time when the world shifted and shuddered as if blasted by a robust icy wind from within its super-heated core; quite a defiant act of nature to say the very least. The trees, plants, animals, insects, and humans going about their daily business and barely paused or felt the micro-second… Continue reading Excerpt from “Risking Truth”

Singsong Style


Today I'm writing in a rhythmic sing-song style by attentively listening to my inner voice.  I begin to understand its lyrics, hear its melody, and feel the tone of its voice.  It sometimes sounds passionate, sometimes urgent, then rushed and demanding, but suddenly the light flows in showing me the cheerful side of it all… Continue reading Singsong Style
