SMART

The Age of Smart advents a glorious panoply of technology and artificial intelligence served in a heady rush as the panacea for all that ails.

Yet with each Age comes the very same trial, the same quest for relevance, the same cost where sword and words draft the sinews of line, and the same pain and ecstasy in manifesting through choice…

Let us choose with vigilance as we craft new matrices lest they entangle us.

Miracle

large

I stand on the precipice of catastrophe and miracle, embracing truth and lie, naked and WITHOUT flesh.  A singular question sears my chimera: will I sacrifice myself, unconditionally, passionately, and  compromise, in the name of all of the Gods, to dive through the ocean in your eyes into the vast emptiness inside you, and search for YOU?

YES!

And so I abandon myself to the will of all that is, as I manifest that very will itself.

Love

.
She:  “I was thinking more about this…”

He:  “Very true, indeed… our conversation on this is extremely telling — you and I have a long-standing discussion, I’m well aware.  Agape, philos, eros… but no, in some ways it’s always the other way around, and that’s one thing that many forget… But perhaps not Meaghan.  Eros, Philos, Agape — Meaghan’s story already has become a trilogy, just because you asked the right question — but of course I already knew that, right?  That’s what her mother taught her, the depths of love.  Book one, Meaghan indulges in eros, book two in philos with David, and book three, after David is killed, agape is woven in the fabric of q…

This is the core of the story, and follows the same trilogy both as Ashleigh’s Vengeance, which in turn was derived from Shift, a story that follows the same path as Memoirs…

— It just occurred to me that I have been wanting to tell this one story — this formulaic pattern of all rhythms, waves and oscillations between desire and cresting, and then ebbing and subsiding to reveal the sublime, and then rise of desire again, on and on until stasis is reached and harmony is achieved in pure agape transcendence.

Meaghan is now truly our protagonist — I personally cannot get away from myself and my mission to tell this story. This is then Melusine, and she slams against the walls of my consciousness until I acknowledge her, until I understand…  What epic myths dwell in our thoughts.  My dear Ahab…”

Dreaming Girl

girl dreaming on a river of blood

Here’s a clue… somewhere in Dupont Circle:

You can find her sleeping on a river of blood,
Dreaming perchance of the coming flood.

If indeed you spy her, do let me know,
And I’ll invite you to the everlasting show.
