In Pursuit of Salvation, Part Five

“It’s still close.  Somewhere in the neighborhood, I think,” Bilal said. “We’ll have a better chance with greater numbers.,” Teddy said.  “Bilal, this is Barnabus.” Bilal approached warily, examining Barnabus with curiosity. “So, you are him, then.  I have heard much of you.”  Bilal’s voice was soothing.

Another day is gone, and all I can do is sigh. So much I desire to do, to create, But where has the time gone? It seems time does nothing but escape, Leaving me here with precious little left to think. I am greedy, it is true, To want all these moments to stretch out,... Continue Reading →

An addled mind

I have posted little in some time. Depression will do that. I have been reasonably functional, but nothing has been able to hold my attention long.
