Saint Camilla

Saint Camilla the hermitess, following her martyr and lurking in the background. For decades she would keep her profile low and bide her time, patience being her primary virtue. In the end, she emerged triumphant. Saint Camilla, grant me the patience to conquer all that I desire.


The world hangs suspended for a day on the Equinox, stops spinning and simply pauses. Somehow at Lammas I knew my life would be totally different come the Equinox, even if paradoxically it’s mostly the same on the surface.

Lady Death

Lady Death glides on the cobblestone roads.

The Pin Test

Long ago the orthodox rabbis had to pass a test whereby the examiner would stab the Torah book with a long pin and the applicant would have to recite in order every word the pin passed through front to back. A level of memorization that must have made sense once upon a time. But they […]

Hypocrites On Parade

Scene 1: She smugly turns from the TV news and a story about a detox center being built to go post on an online forum about how sick it makes her that her tax dollars go to those people. Let ’em die. Hops off her soapbox to settle in to watch “her shows” on the […]
