strengthen

The process. River flowing. Easy does it, but hammers fall and nails break. Relax, take a step back, plan. Moving, swimming, running yet no quitting.

amplified

The caterpillar got a bullhorn and yelled to all the other caterpillars, “LET’S GET ‘EM, GIRLS!” The caterpillars descended on the trees, and within seconds, the leaves were reduced to teeth marks. The evil trees shrunk into smaller versions of themselves, alone and withered in the forest. Nothing was left but the sound of satisfied caterpillar burps.

ancient

This word makes me think of egyptians. They built pyramids, but only the richest of the rich. They thought that your soul needed a place to live in the after life. I don’t like that idea, because if you were a servant in real life, you would be a servant in the afterlife. I bet the poor people didn’t really like this idea, but they didn’t have a choice.

hiking

I don’t like hiking. I like being outside but really don’t enjoy nature trails unless I’m running them. I enjoy nature but hiking is too slow, I get bored and need a goal in mind. A waterfall is not enough. I also don’t having to wear heavy hiking boots – I like to be free.

television

it has been called an idiot box and a baby sitter and I still marvel that with over 80 channels, there is nothing to watch. My mother used it, when she was still at her home and living alone, as noise in the background. She told me that it made her think that there was someone in the house with her. And for that I am grateful.

oil

In the early part of the 20th century there were many looking for the next big oil field – what is known today as the Middle East. But something blocked their way, something called World War I.

collage

Pieces of tattered photos laid across the floor, they were the jig jaw pieces of emotions from times gone by. A smile in that corner, where he gently wrapped his arm around her for the first time on that warm and fair July the Fourth, Always simply a light hearted fellow and never really taking most things seriously before jumping recklessly into the fray head first, it was clear to her that he would irrevocably be woven into the collage of her past year.

antithesis

The end to an end, it doesn’t always come up clear as the blue sky as people would love to envision it. Sometimes the beginnings of great stories often weave into the corners of final chapters of endings.

fabricated

The story she fabricated was full of bright words used perfectly. The way she writes makes you feel filled with hope that this life is worth living. The encouragement she gives is unending.

cities

Teeming, sluggish, filled with the stenching, heady breath of life, with nowhere to go but up.

director

In life, people wake up in the morning with no real sense of purpose usually, if anything, they embrace the spontaneity of each moment that awaits them around the corner. Young folks soon learn that although they may be the director of their own lives, not each take or moment of their cinematic story is completely in their youthful hands.

cool

The water flows across his body as the waves crash on the shore. He allows the ocean to sway him as it pleases. This is his approach to life: go where ever you are taken.

somebody

We never know when we enter the day that is unlike any other in our life time. The one that will define us from that point on, in the lightest and in the darkest hours of.our days, We as a species long for human interaction yet at the same time we strive for complete solitude when the need arises. When we least expect it, we’re going to run into that rare somebody.

before

There was a time when problems were a mere crack in the sidewalk. Now they are a canyon, and I am on the edge. Once, I was carefree and full of life, but I have grown cynical and cold. Once I had hope, but that was before…

setting

Every story has a setting. It explains where the story takes place, and often gives a certain mood to the story. You can learn a lot about the main character from how they act in their environment and what they know because of where they are from. Setting is where the action starts, takes place, and finishes.

port

Port Authority, September 11. Airports, not quite what they used to be.

thread

bobbin threaded and hands moving. I remember when I learned what a bobbin was, how I loved the word (bob bob bobbin along, sewing away, making something new, something old repaired or made new) and when I learned to sew… the thread that machine and to take it apart, to put it back together and make it work. I made clothes and quilts and books and purses and they all reminded me of my grandmother, who rocked.

brick

The Brick knew it was a brick. It didn’t care that it was ignored by
Most of the other building materials. Stone was cold and wood was stuck up. Brick only cared about his fellow bricks.

The brick house I used to live in was old. Musky. I would walk along the long walls, seeking comfort in the tall bookshelves, stacked with old memories. I will go back to that brick house one day, and seek comfort in the same books I read as a child.

thirst

ocean, mist and working out. I think of love and the sea and following childhood sister and friends down to the peir in florida . I think of thunder storms and cobble stones soaked in raindrops. I think of being in the desert dizzy and waiting by the car for my grandmother to come back from the restroom.

She walked into the room of the executive office. Calm, cool, collected. The bartender, while casually slipping her his number on a dirty napkin,

wander

As I wander through the woods a clear sky appear and I am suddenly aware of how gorgeous a place this universe I inhabit is. Why was I never sure of this before? Perhaps it takes a solitary moment in time to appreciate the world around you.

control

We had lost it. The sparks flew off the end of the wire. Nothing had gone right today and now this was happening. “Get out” some yelled as I stared at the sparking wire.

outlet

My father looked at the wall and then at the plug in his hand. The three pronged cord would never fit into and of the simple, two pronged outlets in our home. “So now what?” he asked.

sage

The four of us walked through the large halls of the chapel. It was strange with only the for of us walking. We followed David the great Sage through the halls.

furnace

We sat around the furnace, wallowing in its heat. It was too cold outside to be anywhere else, other than around the warmth. I peered out the window and watched the snow fall in its swirling flakes.

element

Elements are like fire, wind, ice, and earth. there is also the Element brand which I really like. It is mainly for skaters, which a lot of my friends are. I guess you could call me kindof like a skater girl. My ex boyfriend skates. I hate him.
