  • Freeing Clair

    Freeing Clair

    I once met a pianist who could play Clair de Lune. He played with such passion, such beauty that it brought me to tears. His love poured through his fingers and danced across ivory keys. My body moved to his melody in the only way I knew, and I danced for him. The Pianist and […]

  • Curse of the Girl in the Wings

    Curse of the Girl in the Wings

    Enjoy… The wings of a stage hold weighty loneliness when a dancer cannot perform. Shadows swallow my dream of the spotlight while I stand in this cursed darkness. Fear keeps me from the stage while I watch others ascend to greatness.  A dancer takes centre stage with prowling grace as he gazes upon the women […]

  • Danger and Disappointment

    Danger and Disappointment

    I tremble from rage. My eyes burn with tears that drown me on dry land. Screaming in my head at the world, and him, I wonder how I could have been so stupid, so naive. Love does that to a person, at least the idea of it. It twists and taints what should have been […]

    Writer’s Stew for a Hungry Writer!

    Yup, actual stew.  Writing is my second job, albeit unpaid for now. It means I need to make the most of my free time so I can make the most of my writing time. That includes preparing food. Winter is coming, and the days are getting colder and shorter. I’m sharing my versatile recipe for […]

  • New Logo!

    I know I’m a long way off publishing and branding. But it doesn’t hurt to ponder these things as I work up to the whole marketing stuff. I keep dipping into my lapsed graphic design skills and thinking about the general look I want to go for. I’m still deciding, but I have a possible […]
