I knew the dream had started, and I began traversing the twisted, mirror-like halls of my own fractured subconscious. I was afraid, unsure what I would find, uncertain what dark horrors I would conjure to combat myself. I wondered if Odysseus or Magellan, or Armstrong felt this way when they embarked on their own journeys. In any case, it was too late to turn back.Posted By Shad On 03.14.2011 @ 3:51 pm
I looked to my nightstand, then the canvas, then the nightstand again. Her picture was there, in a small frame I picked up at a garage sale. At her garage sale.

It was awful, and I was dying inside.Posted By Shad On 03.08.2011 @ 10:47 pm
It buzzed through my open window, and without a moments hesitation, started an orbit around my head. I tried to ignore it-Mama always said that if you try to swat a honeybee, it’ll just sting you, and then you get to find out if you’re allergic. I wasn’t particularly looking forward to finding out today.Posted By Shad On 03.08.2011 @ 6:42 pm
