"Your story leaves you thinking and with an image. And the more you think about the image, the scarier it gets!. So the story makes a good vivid impression ending. Thats what I found anyway :)"

Absorbing Art

Posted on November 2, 2014 at 13:38 7 Comments

An art lover’s wet dream, a gallery that is as artistic as the art it holds. A giant open aired labyrinth of twisted green hedges with wide dead ends filled with pictures, sculptures and paintings. Each meant to tell you something about the human condition. All it tells me is how good humanity is at bullshitting itself.

The only difference between this and a normal gallery is that I can have smoke whenever I want one. Just tell the better half…

Premonition

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
