An Exit

With one last effort, as dynamic as the last push had been, the fire flickering from the center of the candle exhausted itself.  The burst of smoke illuminated and dispersed as quickly as the spark from a finger snap’s friction.  However, the longer the smoke lingered, the sorry one felt for it.  Despite it being…

Redundancy in a Gif(s)

Today, I’ve had two people tear me a new one.  It’s not the bad kind of tear, but honest.  Now, a break is needed and away from my new resume, a document that has been mulled over, chewed, spit out, run over, beaten, burned, and currently sitting in the waiting room for a thorough makeover.…

Be Foolish

I’m having a difficult time writing, and ideas are being crumbled from my head into solitary words, creating incomprehension and nonsense.  There is a lot to be said, but sometimes you simply cannot.  Instead, really listening/reading has been accomplished.  While listening to my regular go-to, El Ten Eleven, I stared at a brick wall to…
