Apprehension subsides and leaves just wonder, How strange this feeling really seems, Lingering in my limbic system, Still present in my abysmal dreams, Attempting to rid … Continue reading Her
Lashing against window panes, Hungry, vicious, with no mercy, Roaring flames creeping up from hell, Sorrow lurking smoked and blury.

I have never really listened to a podcast, although I like a good audio book, I overlooked the benefits of listening to a good discussion on a subject that I find highly interesting. To tell you the truth, I … Continue reading Minimalism Podcast on a Lazy Day
