I’m a Visual Artist, Omnist, Wordsmith and Chronic Daydreamer. Most of my work is fictional/fantasy short stories and poetry. See more below:
Who Am I?
A Psychotherapist and Author wrote the following about children of narcissistic mothers: “Sometimes, if the abuse in early childhood is severe enough, children of narcissistic mothers will never develop an authentic self. Their identity doesn’t coalesce and they don’t know who they are. They may rely on others to prop them up, or base their identity around a professional role.”
The narrow snow-covered winding road was lined with sharp high mountain cliffs on one side and what seemed like a deep never-ending pit on the other. Nico’s knuckles were white from gripping the steering wheel, making sure not to look to her left where the earth looked as though it could swallow a small skyscraper.
It was just past midnight when Carol stood upon the hilltop, cigarette in hand, looking down into the cool valley of cotton fields. As the full moon caressed the horizon, its light reflected off the thick layer of fog settling just below the hill. The bright white light created the illusion of a small lake. The twinkling lights of fireflies quivered and trembled through the foggy waters like tiny glowing fish, creating a supernatural-like landscape.
Between Here & There
“Sail away, sail away, sail away” , sang Talia as she slowly ran her palms across the tips of the cool green grass. She finally got a Walkman for her birthday, and now she could listen to her mother’s Enya tape wherever she wanted.
Felix and I
Is there even a way to truly describe love with only words? Is there a quote, a paragraph or a verse that’s ever truly captured what love rightly is? Is it possible? The depth, the passion, the infinite grasp and the intensity of love, is something I have never been able to explain as an artist.
Disability and Optimism Bias
Waking up in a dizzying state of sunlight and the tail end of tranquilizers. My every morning. I roll over a few more times trying to coax my body back to sleep. I’m so physically drained and aching…..but it’s also depression too, and I know it.
