Adore

“Adore” is a story from the upcoming When All The Worlds Were Singing.

🕉

“O, if only he had a friend!” a terrible actor laments from the stage; he performs only for Her laughter so it is hard for him to suppress his smile and muster the gravity his lines require. “O, just one friend, somewhere in this great and vast universe, where stars pour delight upon little balls of carbon ash and fusion trash and silicate scum! Just one, who knows his true name and can remind him when he forgets!”

The Queen almost rushes the stage in Her mirth, but he bids Her pause with … click to continue reading

Beauty

Beauty not only exists in the eye of the beholder, that is the only place it exists. A scene, an object, a being, none of these things contains beauty as an intrinsic property. To be called beautiful, someone must view the thing and appreciate that beauty—and sometimes there is a great deal of variation even between humans as to what constitutes beauty.

How do we make sense of this? What is beauty for, if it is inconsistent and subjective? Here is one possible explanation.

Beauty is your soul’s recognizing itself somewhere in the “external” world. When you realize—or perhaps decide—something is beautiful, you are drawn toward it either … click to continue reading

Writer’s Blah

Writer’s block is a funny thing when your usual conception of your own mental functioning is that your conscious mind does little to no work in the writing process. Multisensory aphantasia tends to leave one with the expectation that a blank page will just slowly fill itself with pertinent words and sentences. This usually works fairly well; the greatest difficulty is a certain stiffness or pain in the fingers while they are moving on the keyboard—but even that happens automatically.

So what, then, is writer’s block if this is your condition? Put simply, it is the lack of will to sit down and let the work do itself. … click to continue reading

Adamasia

“Adamasia” is a story from the upcoming When All The Worlds Were Singing.

🕉

A long time ago when all the worlds were new and your grandparents were yet young, there was a speck of gold.

It rests on a black disk the size of your hand. The disk is so dark you really can’t see it. There are voids in the modern universe, billions of light-years across, so profoundly empty and vast the surrounding galaxies cannot be seen within them. This disk is dark like that, a hole in the light surrounding it, finely made. You cannot tell if there is even a substance here.

🕉

I walk in the beauty You have surrounded me with, trees lush with spring bloom, adorned with new green and flowers of red and white and purple that did not trouble to wait until May.
