Zombie Bites New Abstract: Winter


This is the essence of my life for the past two years.  On the surface, things have become frozen, coagulated into an icy hinterland.  Winter has set in.  Beneath the surface, my waters boil for freedom and release, a fiery urgency focused on moving forward.  Every choice, every motion requires twice as much effort and energy to accomplish.  Amber like circumstance has become impossible to dissolve.  I struggle for possibility in an ever tightening circle of dead ends.

From the Archives: The Ghostly Princess of Mirrors

The Ghostly Princess of Mirrors was cursed long ago.  The curse forced her into a strange endless limbo.  Her transparent metallic face takes on the aspects and appearance of the person to whom she is speaking, but her eyes are always closed.

Featured Creature: The Thing in the Cave

"I hung my lantern from a nearby support strut and set about to examine the strange opening.  It was emerging from the cave floor at an odd angle, as though it had been grown there.  It was soft and warm to the touch, but had a solid structure that seemed like plastic.  The horned protuberances were covered with small fine hairs that stung my fingers when I touched them, much like a cactus.  The entire structure dripped with the humidity of the cave.  I wiped the sweat from my brow to see more clearly.  I'd looked all about the cave but still could not locate the source of all the steam.

Self Portrait: This Has Always Been Within Me

Due to the recent ingress of Pluto into Capricorn, it would seem the Universe wants my molten core raw and exposed.  Despite my reservations, despite any resistance on my part, my illusions continue to drip away like overheated wax.  I'm forced to allow it, because... well, it's the Universe.  You can say no, but it's wasted breath.  All you can do is manage the pain and shake your fist at the uncaring sky screaming every expletive and curse you know.  Many have questioned this action on my part, but I think that it is important to lodge a complaint even if the boss is the system / Universe your immersed in.  At least if anything else, they will know that you did not bow willingly.
