A Tactile Life

Wednesday, May 6, 2009


There are places where I have never been that I belong and places I frequent from which I could not feel more disconnected. Home is carried in my heart through the memories of people and how they fit into a place, filled it up with love, or left it more colorful. It grounds me and strengthens me and...

Stories I tell II

The story I have told the world is just as real as the one I tell myself, more so, because it is backed up with actions and history. This is what frightens me the most. What if I can never find the right words? What if the colors on the pallet in my head are too vivid to actually mix? What if the... Sign in to see full entry.

Running With Scissors.

Perception. Talent. Opinion. Whose? I will run with scissors if I choose. I will push the boundaries of thought and perception. Perhaps only my own, but limits will be snapped. If I dream in color, then I will paint and write in color. Mixed with tears on a pallet of laughter. Nothing in the rule... Sign in to see full entry.
