Before You Can Really See
The world is spinning around you Like a merry-go-round And someone is pushing you faster. At first the spinning is fun And you beg for the excitement As you spin, spin, spin, And you clutch the cold metal. But soon the metal hurts as you grip tighter You doubt if you can hold on And you start to slide off The world is so blurred. Let go. Even after the ride has stopped You still feel the spinning But it will cease Everything is temporary And you will see more clearly than ever before. Sometimes the world has to be out of focus F o r  y o u  t o  r e a l l y  s e e

another day alive
I ran to my room that morning, still dressed in a black primrose dress, not because I was afraid of death, but because I was afraid of not-death. And this fear was the one thing I could not bear, for after all the moonlit sonatas and burning candle flames, what if you never died? What would happen if Van Gogh had never, or if Hannibal had never? What if everyone lived and nobody died? There would be no room for the things we loved - like fireflies; Darwin; 1066. Would a tree still be a tree? Would we be the same race as before; would we race the same? Would we fall off buildings with no significance, 9/11 just another day, another queue, or

Look Before You Leap
The smell of sulphur permeated his suit. His body absorbed and metabolized it, leaving a permanent foul taste in his mouth. He exuded sulphur through every pore. In short, Martin Petrov stank. This, however, was the least of his worries. His most pressing problem was Io's corrosive atmosphere and the deleterious affect it was having on the poorly maintained seals of his bounder, a six legged contraption that leapt, rather than rolled, over Io's undulating, ever changing landscape. The thin caustic atmosphere had caused a serious leak in the crew cab. It would not hold air. He had barely fifteen minutes worth of oxygen in his suit and Hera w

Sunset Afternoon
Dear Patrick,                            If I had to make a list of things I feared most it would go like this: 1. Skin cells 2. Deodorant 3. CD cases without the CD 4. Pencils that never stop breaking 5. Water 6. Chewing gum 7. Soles 8. Tree surgeons 9. God 10. Souls 11. Ending on a round number "So how old are you then, son? Ten?" Gareth, mum's new boyfriend asks. "Twelve," I tell him stiffly. 12. People who aren't my dad but still call me 'son' He nods, more to do something with some part

Forget Me Not
The five member crew of the ISS watched in rapt horror as 425 miles below them miniature stars blossomed upon the Earth's surface. This can't be happening. It's not real, Dr. Irena Mikhailovich whispered. Her tears failed to stream down her delicate cheek. Instead they separated with every blink of her eyes and floated before her. Captain Roger Launius, USAF, hovered beside her watching the events unfold. There goes D.C.. New York just bought it. Well, how about that? Looks like we're landing at Edwards. Nope, spoke too soon. How can you be so damn cavalier? She said, turning on him angrily. Our world is destroying itself and we're help

Inactivity!
 I'm so sorry for the inactivity here on DA. Honestly life has gotten so busy I haven't had time to get my photography uploaded. On top of having no art software, or internet, and an ancient computer at home, it adds to the difficulty. Then when I'm not working (which is not a lot), I'm at the gym or getting other life stuff taken care of. Sometimes I hate being so busy and without resources. :( But just keep in mind I do lurk around time to time to add things to my favorites and show my support :)

Writing a novel! ,)
 I've had a story in my head for almost a year now. It was a repeat dream, but not in the sense people think of when they hear that term. This dream continued almost every night or every other night. The characters and details were so clear and the story line was really cool. It's stuck in my head long enough that I think I am going to run with it. Sure, as every writer probably feels, I really have my doubts of this story is really going to interest anybody else but me, or if it is worth writing, but it couldn't hurt to try at at least. I started writing since high school. One of my first books was never completed but I got about 3/4ths wa

Lazy
Wow, I've been lazy this year so far when it comes to actually putting things up on here. Still need internet at home, I swear. I don't want to be here after work just to load up shots from my camera lol. But I still lurk, and wow, there are so many great artists on here. It brings a smile to my face to come on here everyday and see the beautiful things people are able to create. Thank you all for your stunning art!
