    Belong, Reprise

    As daylight’s moments unfurl into resplendent hours, time dances before us. Whenever I gaze upon the looking glass, a vision of my own feminine essence greets me; a whimsical whisper of self twirling gracefully upon the carousel’s edge, wrapped in a riddle of endless wonder.

    “Almost,” the quiet sentinel of uncharted realms, where wishes become like fireflies dancing in the twilight of our yearning, casting a glow upon the silhouettes of our unattained desires. It is a word that lingers, etched upon our hearts like the fading ink of a love letter never sent, a token of the times we dared to dream but were held back by the gravity of reality. In the gardens of life, “almost” grows like a vine, winding its way through the tangled branches of our aspirations, seeking out the light of what could be, while casting shadows upon the blossoms of our achievements. It is the quiet rustle of…

    The Enduring Power Of Love

    The sky was a canvas of pastel hues, as the sun descended in a final blaze of glory. The moon, a luminescent orb, rose slowly into the night, casting a mystical glow upon the earth.

    Thomas Slatin Quote About Isolation

    I grew up in a world that didn’t understand me, and in some ways, it still doesn’t. Throughout my childhood, I was always reading, and always looking for answers in the books I loved so much.

    Thomas Slatin Quote On Greater Understanding

    This morning, I ran to the water, took all my clothes off, stood at the waters edge and gazed awhile in the solace of silence.

The stick, such as my life will inevitably get bashed among the rocks, experiencing highs and lows, might eventually be rewarded by one day finding the ocean. Everyone stayed while I went away. I was pushed to my breaking point many…

    Thomas Slatin Quote On Writing A Novel

    “Although I have considered writing a novel, my wheelhouse is not in fiction, and even it it were, my writing would center around black forests and wolves, with characters all in half-costume, half-awake, and half gone to seed. When I was younger, I would write in riddles and rhymes, whereas in recent years, I have started writing with old words which are so obscure that people falsely assume that they are simply made-up words, in the trademark great reverent style that is uniquely mine.” Thomas Slatin
