Visual Prompts

It’s been a few years since I’ve had to write a short story about a picture.  You would think that it would also be less difficult to write something about a picture that I had to choose…nope, you would be wrong.  It took me the longest hour of my life to choose a picture.

Then, it took me a few hours to draft and refine my short story -_-;;

The “hours” passed quicker when I had a based my fictional narrative on snippets of sci-fi.

I’ve attach the short story to this post.  Feel free to browse and provide constructive feedback!

Art and Music

This is a preview of one of my acrylic paintings.

The name of this piece will follow soon but I just wanted to share how it incorporates my love of art and music.  I’m also showing how we digest “new” music like hungry fish only to be hooked with certain songs.  There’s a cyclical nature to art and music since we have our waxing and waning moods that change what we like and dislike, but we will always have that pattern of criteria that makes a specific piece (whether musical or artistic) touch our mind, hearts, and soul to make the world seem like a better place to be.
