60 seconds.

Ruby is power-walking home. She really needs to grab a bite to eat.  She hasn’t eaten all day, and is feeling light-headed. Bright lights are popping behind her eyes – marking the beginning of a headache. She drops her bag as she walks in the door and looks frantically around for a bite of food.... Continue Reading →

The Trees

The track at the park is round. I like things symmetrical. Symmetry feels right. I ride my bike on the same path without stopping for hours when my mind is racing. I come out here in the middle of the night sometimes, I like it better without all the people. I am here by daylight... Continue Reading →

The street is deserted.  She is seeing something that nobody else can. A crack in the stones. She notices a shimmer almost like... Continue Reading →

Shallow is as shallow does

So i've been pretty tired lately.  In fact, i've been tired all year. I figured my life would improve after I sorted out all my shit with family court.  Custody arrangements are now running like a well-oiled machine.  Well, as good as anyhow.  A few grumbling moments where the traffic has been so thick you...
