-Content warning.   What makes a monster? Is a monster born that way? Is he aware of his own monstrosity? I ponder this as I watch them shout holding their signs. Distraught and angry relatives of the victims. “Fry the Monster! “ reads one of the signs. He murdered a family in cold blood. A... Continue Reading →

The Blue Jay and the Hawthorn

The blue jay swooped and spun over the lush valley, diving and swerving to evade the Enemy. The hawk, hungry and not to be outdone, corrected its flightpath, twisting around.

I have no idea why.” How... Continue Reading →
