Fibonacci Man

Everywhere I went, I saw the Fibonacci spiral—everywhere. What did it all mean? Finally, I did the math, and it freaked me out. On May 3rd, I first noticed the sequence—both the month and day were Fibonacci numbers. Then, I realized the year was also a Fibonacci number—2584. That’s the date I became aware of...

Illusion or Perception

Jump, they told us. Will it be down or up? None of us knew for sure where we’d end up. We didn’t know any different because our lives started on this ship. Clouds didn’t indicate up. I never understood the meaning of the word up or down concerning relocation. All any of us perceived were... Continue Reading →

Thirst And Desire

I heard the raucous voices in the back room of the warehouse—four men playing poker. A beer sat on the table adjacent to each man’s hand to quench their thirst. Fluids quench our thirst—water being the most essential. But, for some, thirst is never satisfied by conventional means. Hiding behind a stack of crates, I... Continue Reading →

The city, in complete chaos, groaned as it burned to ashes. Death was imminent, and the old woman surrendered her sight as she... Continue Reading →

Jane sat in her canoe, listening as the water bubbled and splashed against the side. She sat strategically positioned—staring down a tunnel between pilings of the pier. As Jane watched the sun fall asleep, a greenish liquid carpet rolled in its direction. Surreal. She waited for inspiration and watched for a sign of hope. At... Continue Reading →

On a bench of SOLACE

A loud slap across her jaw forced the woman back against the kitchen sink. The smell of jasmine perfume on her husband's shirt sent salty tears down her face. The wretched memory of the night before made her throat hurt from the lump that formed. Lying on the park bench, book in hand, let her... Continue Reading →
