I Need Reminding

I need reminding. The glow of inspiration fades and I am left empty. I need reminding. Often. The hunger for more and the path towards it grows dim and blurry. I am lost and need reminding. The flash of light that illuminates truth, flickers and dies in the monotony of daily life. I am leftContinue reading “I Need Reminding”

Varieties of Fear

Fleeting Fear. The kind that rushes in and out with equal speed and disregard for the immediate undoing of all peace and relaxation.
