The Mimes Cry

Mimicry is both voluntary and involuntary, humanity both symptom and cause. Who are the mimes that dispense medication to mimes that cry?

It Can Tell Yet Not Acknowledge

In my dream, I'd fallen into a puddle during the rain, a fairy woke me up, and carried me to the curb, laying me down on a wet bed of flowers. I held my finger out to her as if to see if she was real, and she held my hand without saying a word. I stared at the rain falling in the street, and fell into a trance at the many circles it created. I asked the fairy why the rain was creating circles, and she smiled before pointing across the street, to the other curb, and he was there laying also in a bed of flowers. Laura Lynn Vala

"L'absence est une maison si vaste qu'à l'intérieur vous passerez à travers ses murs et accrocherez des images en l'air." ~ Pablo Neruda

Scraping For Deliverance

"Curiosity, learning, and interpretation are together a dance that finds rest in blankets of continuity." Laura Lynn Vala

Vapor

“The secret island had looked mysterious enough on the night they had seen it before - but now, swimming in the hot June haze, it seemed more enchanting than ever. As they drew near to it, and saw the willow trees that bent over the water-edge and heard the sharp call of moorhens that scuttled off, the children gazed in delight. Nothing but trees and birds and little wild animals. Oh, what a secret island, all for their very own, to live on and play on.” ― Enid Blyton, The Secret Island

Shells

“You can live for a long time inside the shell you were born in. But one day it'll become too small." "Then what?" I ask. "Well, then you'll have to find a larger shell to live in." I consider this for a moment. "What if it's too small but you still want to live there?" She sighs. "Gracious, child, what a question. I suppose you'll either have to be brave and find a new home or you'll have to live inside a broken shell.” ― Christina Baker Kline

Special

“Don't waste your tremendous voice writing messages in the sand.” ― Lorin Morgan-Richards

Smoking Room

“Why do you have a cigarette lighter in your glove compartment?" her husband, Jack, asked her. "I'm bored with knitting. I've taken up arson” ― Audrey Niffenegger

Circumstance

“Man may feel like a feeble and powerless pawn, at some moment in his life. This apprehension can come out of the blue, in the middle of the day, at the center of a public place, like a cerebral attack. Check mated by 'daily routine', he may feel trapped in a smothering set of circumstances and only a deconstruction of all impeding barriers can bring about a vital mental deliverance. ( "Check and mate" )” ― Erik Pevernagie

A Hearts Trembling Sound – Part II

"monsters and creatures in between cerberus and disney plutonean thought eat what hell describes as nihilism to feed what fantasy describes as heaven, and in this flux the mind commands the body to love in the coldest and warmest of seasons." llv

A Hearts Trembling Sound

We tremble less when singing songs of our heart, in the tempo of our soul. We love more when embracing sounds of resonance not graded by scales of balance. We speak truest when unedited by the fears of perception.

On Your Skin

“I want to see the thirst inside the syllables I want to touch the fire in the sound: I want to feel the darkness of the cry. I want words as rough as virgin rocks.” ― Pablo Neruda

Extensions

“The study of man is the study of his extensions.” ― Edward T. Hall
