Context

For so long, I did not understand the resentment. I thought my efforts to improve appeared subtle, so I worked hard to make them prominent. You only noticed the flaws; […]

Desperation

We were free to go wherever we chose, without restrictions, until the 21st century. Fear and death came from the sky; then, we gave away our privacy for security – […]

Liberty

The notion of simplicity is complicity in nature. We cannot contest what we cannot see. Now, life teeters on a mandate. In sickness and in health, we wear the mark. […]

New Normal

Politicians gave us the plague and broke our economy—a new population of the sick and the shut-in. The language of fear changed from ‘unprecedented’ to ‘asymptomatic.’ We should have sold […]

My twisted path. The weight of every step left a deep impression. Every way I took led to a dark revelation. I must gently find my horizon.

Plain Sight

Morning revelations, illuminating the cracks along the fragile lines.
