Isn’t that a beautiful word? Chrysalis. I’ve always loved the celestial feeling that seeing or saying the word evokes. It seems similar to the word crystal, which evokes, pure, shimmering, magnificent rock imagery that unfolds in my minds eye as the word graces my ocular or auditory senses. Yet the word evolves from a Greek […]

How Many Exits Do You See?
This has all happened before now. You are not imagining this. Life is a dream and you are an imagination of your self. Do not pass go. Or do, because you will still end up in the same spot. The behaviors reveal the similarities. You are merely a mimic of yourself. You are a marionette by […]
