    Hidden Light

    I am not her. I am trapped inside her stupid, miserable life, but I am not her. I am far more beautiful. I am powerfully creative. I burst with love and light, every color. I am not her. She only lets me out in sobs of longing, keeping me veiled. She aches for me. I live inside...

    I Guess Its Ok

    I really love writing, I think, but I can't seem to get it together. Its a bit disscouraging when I hear that sometimes it takes years to create a story good enough to get published, I don't think I can wait 10 years for someone to like my stories.

    When I was a young man of 15, I enjoyed fishing in a stagnant slough near my home. I often caught a good number of catfish and bluegill in the slough but my mom rarely cooked any of them because she feared that they might be contaminated. One beautiful spring day I went to my...
