From the Void

An old man sat proper on the bench across from the young man. He was sipping a gas station coffee from the fill-up down the block. He sat there calm and contemplative, and from what the young man could tell…an atmosphere of mindfulness clung to him. The young man who was sitting across from him […]

The Looking Glass

The walk from my truck wasn’t to far from the beach so I carried my telescope instead of rolling it along the sand.  Denver jumped out of the truck from the passenger door, and ran towards the beach to chase the seagulls wagging his tail in a frenzy.  The telescope wasn’t heavy enough to ask […]

He Who Casts The Shadow

A quiet town named Charon loomed in the distance ahead, and the cowboy rode east into the dawn light.  The Cowboy had been riding for days and his mare was growing weaker as they pressed on triumphantly with little rest.  His horse left bloody hoof marks for what seemed like miles when they first fled […]

Our Tombstone

The news anchor of the network paused for a moment, standing idle and looking pensive. She took a couple deep breaths and regained her composure.

The Pillars of Creation

What we do know, and what we can assert without hesitation, is that the universe had a beginning.  The universe continues to evolve. And yes, every one of our body’s atoms is traceable to the big bang and to the thermonuclear furnaces within high-mass stars that exploded more than five billion years ago. We are […]

The Speaker

A necromantic looking speaker shrieks into the microphone. A deafening shriek, that screams at you like a tortured soul that’s waiting to be released from its twisted hell.  A hush falls over the amphitheater.  People in the amphitheater don’t dare face the stranger standing next to them for fear of being noticed by the speaker.  […]
