    Snake In The Grass...

    I just thought about this phrase again the other day... been a long time since I've encountered this phrase. I see that reality sets in really slowly sometimes on either good or bad things. It makes me question the Purpose of Life!

    the world is intrusive.

    it tears the shell of the cozy little reality i built of my own. icy fingers gleefully stir up things better forgotten. facts and figures, cold calculations. harsh light of a frigid sun. the green feilds and lush forests in my mind are ground under the glaciers of...
