The Art Of Living In One’s Own Mind

You would be lucky if you were to get to your toes if you were counting the amount of beautiful days for a picnic in London, England. When Mother Nature grants you a day with slightly overcast skies and a forty percent chance of precipitation you might as well take full advantage of the offer. … Continue reading

You’re So Hypnotizing

“There were two points of view he was having troubles reconciling. From the first one, he was seeing himself as some sort of adventurer, who was following his instincts in his quest for something great, just not well defined. From the second one, he was morally bankrupt, irresponsible criminal, who was lying and stealing to … Continue reading

A Novel Approach

“Without an author, a novel wouldn’t be written, but without a reader, a novel would have no effect. Without readers, novels can’t be. We don’t only read novels – we create them.

“The sound cuts off, and Carly stares at the dead phone like she wants to crush it in her fist. Thunder shakes the house again, and a flash of lightning illuminates the shabby living room. Suddenly everything seems very still. The wind goes silent. Our eyes meet in the dim light. We both know, deep … Continue reading

Can You See Me Now?

“I was dead. That in itself didn’t concern me much. I’d never been afraid of death. Of dying, yes; of a painful end, or a premature one – important things left undone – definitely.
