You have entered the realm of a writer.

Welcome to A Writer's Landscape!

You have entered the realm of my mind where words play with the fabric of our existence. This is the map of my imagination: the very foundations of inspiration, musing, and thought splayed for your wandering eyes. Dive deep into the tides of these forces and experience my reality, my fantasy, my world; and if you should be so inclined, share your words with this land.

Peace and Love!

A light shown into the gloom: dim, vacant, barely visible save for a direct line of sight to its source. Even then, when facing the subtle illumination, it stands alone, surrounded by the depths and drowning in that fullness. When the perspective changes, even slightly, the light seems to mist over and disappear, much like an isle of old full of magic and lore. Such vision envelopes the mind in terror, cascading all grasp of ground, air, breath into a swirling mass of black. Thought, feeble in these instances, breaks apart into falling leaves whispering and screaming in the ear of the beholder: stop, stop, stop; help me; hello; oh God. Prayers to anything real or imaginative to come to aid, but alas, the darkness is lonesome and foreboding. It turns to a blanket which wraps and suffocates and soothes until finally all desire for the light turns to a slack body laying still, lips moving in incoherent tongues muttering about the lack of caring. It deepens, the darkness, into such desolate dreams full of doubt of ever finding yourself again. Then sleep comes, that precious state of calm where the mind is mute and the knowledge of your despairs is silenced in visions carefully played out in the imaginary world of Selene. Awaking the next morning, you realize you're still in your tiny apartment, stranded away from everything you love and care about, chained to a job which strangles your aspirations in a region grossly overpriced; tears don't come in your empty stare into the dark television screen.
