Questions, part 4

THE ROSES. THE END. NOTE: For this story, to make it easier to read, Alex is represented in the italics. It’s light outside, and I turn on my side to find the darkness. The alarm goes off and my phone tells me it’s twenty six degrees outside, but I’m freezing. It rings again. I press... Continue Reading →

Control

In a world ruled and created through chaos, human beings were given, or developed, the capacity for logical thinking. The very first thing they did was create order through control. They built farms in place of hunting, started languages as better ways of communicating which they’ve since then refined and perfected, and they organised villages,... Continue Reading →

Questions, part 3

THE PEACOCK My day started off pretty usual. I vacuumed, cleaned the oven, had some lunch and then went to work my shift at the local café. I make the little cakes and deserts and stuff, and sometimes lend a hand with waitressing if it’s needed. Then I had to do some laundry, pick up... Continue Reading →

Questions, Part 2

THE PELICAN AND THE SPARROW I wake up to a pounding headache in someone else’s bed. I check my top pocket- yea, my gun’s still there. I try to stand up and slowly sit back down. Not a good idea. I realise I’m cold. I’m still wearing my shoes. I can’t see Sarah. Is this... Continue Reading →

At this point, I’ve been blogging for maybe over 6 months [?], written 140ish posts and have around 50 followers [when lovely photos of food can get thousands!]. I still get enjoyment out of it, though, and here, my friend, is why.... Continue Reading →

A Good Psalm

Going through the book of Psalms in my Bible study the other day, I came across this and thought it might encourage someone. [This is from the Message version, btw.] “I’m asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long. I’ll contemplate his beauty, I’ll... Continue Reading →

Suicide

People say scrolling through Facebook is shallow, it’s a waste of time. I don’t think they realise just how revealing it can be of humanity’s spirit. Today, the 14th of April, 2015, at 3:25 pm in the afternoon, this photograph had 24,050 likes. That means that 24,050 people related to it in some way or... Continue Reading →
