The Muse

If writing is holy ground, come walk with me through the fodder of your imagination. Come bear with me through the pins and needles that dig into your sleeping confidence. Come smile at me even if your resolve is dissolving into pieces, while the joy in your eyes melts and slides down your face, slipping …

I Think I’m Indecisive, But I Can’t Be Too Sure

"Have you finished your homework yet?" Those dreaded words are every school aged kid's nightmare, the defining line in the sand between where the fun stops and the drudgery begins.
