modern day epistolary

Writing Prompt: Handwriting Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. I love nothing more than hand written letters. I’ve always wanted to find a pen pal whom I can write snail mail letters to, to get the feel of what it was like to anticipate a response, rather than email, text or …

the dust that i am

I’ve come to realize over the years that my existence is like a tiny atom/molecule/single celled creature under a microscope; a tiny speck of dust on some distant planet in some distant galaxy, in a possibly distant universe ensconced within another atom filled with universes. And that atom that houses many universes is a single …

wickedness unbound

Writing Prompt: Wicked Witch Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life. I don’t understand evil. The desire to be evil eludes me beyond the very basic instinct to defend myself against someone who …

a sobering existence

I’ve been traveling most of the week. My very good friend’s grandmother died and I wanted to be there for her. Her grandmother was an incredibly prepared woman. She planned every aspect of her funeral down to the coffin, memorial cards and obituary. There was nothing that needed to be done or paid for except …

food and the body

I attended a nutrition seminar today. It was refreshing to see a nurse practitioner who actually addressed eating habits when faced with patients with serious health problems. So few in the medical industry address the foods we eat as one of the major causes of most dis-ease. Processed foods are destructive to our system, tossing …

upon the shelf

Writing Prompt: Shelf Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Little eight year old girls make soccer balls in Pakistan; fingers roughened by sturdy leather, needles and thick thread. Bottoms hover just above dirt paved streets as they squat to work under the noon’s blazing sun hanging from a low sky. Bodies …

the need for thought

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the need for thought. – Henri Poincare What a profound truth. I find that most people are at one end or another, but rarely in a space of thoughtful introspection and observation. I try at all times to examine all …

of my womb

Writing Prompt: Legacy Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. My daughters are my legacy. I give them to the future in hopes that they may discover a way to change this world and set humans free. They are the seed from my womb, sprouted and born to the sun, ready to …

nocturne

Sitting inside myself, watching myself, seeing me as an observer, and allowing the world to pass through me, through my skin. I am really here, experiencing this existence. I see other people experiencing their existence and seeing the world from perspectives I could never imagine. Tchaikovsky’s Nocturne op. 19 played by Nina Kotova is the …

i’m not coming back

Writing Prompt: Karma Chameleon Reincarnation: do you believe in it? I neither believe nor disbelieve. I don’t know and would never pretend to know. What I’m clear about are the many questions I have about the idea of reincarnation if it does exist. Based on the conclusions I’ve come to, I absolutely under no circumstances …

the longing

Writing Prompt: Longing Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. I am longing for true freedom, bedecked in translucent gems and emerald silk lace. Freedom that is jackfruit and ginep sweet. Mango flesh on my wanting tongue. Feeding me a ripe future. I want freedom unbound, chain-less and naked in wide open …

laughter off limits

Writing Prompt: Too Soon? Can anything be funny, or are some things off limits? Given the nature of the culture, there are definitely some things that are off limits. How does one make funny the murder of an infant? What sort of joke can be created around children who are beheaded and blown to bits because …

seeking bridges to cross

Writing Prompt: Divide Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. The world is divided. Some humans are at odds with nature and each other, even at odds with their own soul.
