Little Birds

Little Birds



I want to give you little birds

The flicker of their wings

bathe you, in my drowsy warmth.



I want to give you little birds

to wake you slowly

with a breathless sigh.

The soft gentle hum

of recognition! Tender calm.

Are you awake my Love,

will you rejoin their cry?



I want to give you little… Continue

47 things we haven't done yet!

47 things we haven't done yet!



Hold hands in the rain

Walk barefoot on the beach

Roast big plump marshmallows

Share a sleeping bag

Feel our ears pop on take-off

Abandon ego



Kiss in the shower

Make snow angels

Buy a couch

Go for a bike ride

Finish each other's sentences

Be slow to anger



Share spaghetti, from the same bowl

Walk our dogs

Curl up together in the glow of a crackling… Continue

17 August 2009 - Lacanian Blues

Words are symbols. Each symbol carrying a specific meaning. You can unite them together and try to express some idea or emotion, but you're limited by the tools available. String a series of symbols together and you create a larger symbol for a broader vision or insight. But there is still the underlying thought not fully expressed.



Physicists and scientists talk about how hard it is to describe, or create a model of, objects on the sub-atomic level, where everything is probability.… Continue

09 August 2009 - Why do moths fly into flames?

One may wonder how the moth has survived for close to 400 million years when they seem at such a disadvantage. How could a creature make it through all the ages if it seems compelled to fly into eminent danger?



Many insects use celestial objects to navigate. It's called transverse orientation. They maintain an angular relationship with a single point of reference, perhaps the moon, or a bright star, and this allows them to fly in a straight path. Since these objects are so far away… Continue

Why Look for a Career in Writing?

When you first look at a career in writing there's excitement and wonder that anyone would want to pay you for what you have to say. The first time you see your work published instills a feeling much like those winning the lottery must feel. Recieving a check only confirms you have what it takes to start on the journey down the road of the writer. But why would anyone want to make a living as a writer when the journey can be so unpredictable?
