DEAR DIARY

It is only when you sit down and think about your day on a regular basis that you realise just how fucking samey life is. I use the word you but I of course mean me, I am not really into using the word “one” to represent myself, so I will rarely if ever says … More DEAR DIARY

WU WEI

This was originally published on another blog from a prompt that used to be posted. I felt it was in keeping with this blog and so have republished it here. Wu wei, or non-doing, is a Taoist practice involving letting one’s action follow the simple and spontaneous course of nature rather than interfering with the … More WU WEI

THE ROOM

The whispered tones faded to silence as the man in the white lab coat approached them. He stood for several minutes just looking at them and no words uttered from his mouth during that time. They all felt sufficiently intimidated as their teacher had warned them and none could hold his gaze for longer than … More THE ROOM

SURPRISE ATTACK

The sleek black hull of the Ashimmu blended in almost perfectly with the backdrop of the depths of space, everything on board had been shut down, no electronic noise at all, she was like a hole in space, listening.

WHEAT

There is a beauty in simplicity do you not agree? For me a simple photograph such as this gives so much back. I can almost feel the heat from the sun as it dips just below the horizon, the ear of wheat portrayed perfectly in silhouette, The details on how it is constructed are displayed … More WHEAT
