Tonight I feel inspired. As I tenderly place small fingers upon my keyboard, I want to pour out my soul like a thick cream on ripe strawberries. Words are powerful and I want to draw you in with my phrases, captivate you with poetic images, a myriad of glowing letters falling from the World Wide Web. Go ahead and pick the ones you like; you can have as many as you wish.
Let me take you on a journey. I’d like you to see the world through my kaleidoscope as I gaze up at you, big-eyed and full of impending wonder. It’s a little weird inside my head but I’ll make a nice cozy corner for you. Get comfortable and hold on tight as it’s going to be a wild ride.
I sweep through the nooks and corners daily so you won’t find any cobwebs but what you will discover is a lot of hidden doors, small and secret passageways the lead to other worlds, outer space and through time. There are ghosts and angels masquerading as demons, aliens that fall in love with us and places in-between the in-betweens.
There are lost dreams, half-written adventures and hundreds of stories in the process of being imagined. You’ll meet Jack the troll (very misunderstood), Shell – my alien and hero, Habara my demon and a thousand other characters pressing up against those doors just waiting to meet you.
You’ll trip across a labyrinth of plots, outlines of entire worlds, paths that lead to nowhere and roads that lead in a circle right back to you. There are dreams that repeat and have done so since I was a child; I just know there is meaning in some of them. You’ll see the things I’m most afraid of (it’s never what you’d think), the fragments of my life that make me weep and sometimes, you’ll catch a glimpse of the really dark things.
Those that I keep buried and hidden down a very deep well. I don’t go there anymore, I don’t suggest you do either. It’s much too ugly. However, feel free to walk or run as fast as you can. Explore as long as you like.
Don’t get lost, now. I may never find you. Let me know when you want me to let you out.
