  1. A Movie Which Looks Like My Life

    Hi. Today we watched a movie in class. I didn't feel with the enough motivation of watching a 2hrs and a half movie at 10 AM so at first I wanted to continue my drawing of White Mask from the novel Tian Guan Ci Fu, however, just the start got me hooked. It tells the story of a kid who has dislexia and has to grow up with such difficulties in a family that has no idea of what it is or how to make the kid improve. However, this kid, after a long time of suffering, punishment and feelings...
  2. I've Dug My Grave

    Hi. This could be also in the support part of this forum, as my brain is ilogically going crazy without finding an exit. However, I prefer it to keep in here as it's an event of my life I didn't want to happen, yet it did. And no matter how many times I script situations day after day, I'm unable to solve this now it's done. As I told, I'm studying in a class, with humans, and in the last module of our course, we have to create big activities for enjoyment and put it in common with our...
  3. Rant

    Constantly feel like im on a slippery slope about to fall to my death any minute. I can't ever relax or people will understand there is something off about me. I wish someone would help me, or tell me that it's okay to take it easy. Not even my therapist tells me that, because she also knows there is no other way. Even if i were to become open about my difficulties, how much i am enduring i already know no one will help me. They will Just look at me like i grew a second head and ignore me....
  4. I Felt Free Inside A Character

    Hi. Today I'm going to tell a game we did in class, but left me wondering how I could feel so good while doing just a "character" for everyone else. As we're going to work in a psychiatric with people diagnosed with way different disorders, our teacher likes to play games that will make us face some random situations for when we will be in the units for developing some skills before the real thing. Today's game was becoming an unit composed by blind, deaf, mobility disabled,...
  5. New Fulfilling Experience

    Hi. Today gave me the chance to experience a very satisfying morning that I wish it would always be this calm and relaxing. As always, I went to class, taking the bus. Surprisingly, it was cooling outside due to yesterday's storms, so I felt my body slightly shivering. Once inside, the sunlight through the window warmed my cold arms while my headphones were on, listening to my favourite songs during the fifteen minutes trip. I walked across the path, surrounded by nature and animals,...

  7. Reflections of Dog(s)

    Reflection of Dog(s) I saw the last day of wooled giants the rise and flow of the jeweled Nile as cut stone temples bloomed in the sand When the Nile parted I watched a passage blown open as man woman and child stood and waited for a path of mud At Qadesh I saw when the chariots with their archers rolled onto the plain as man and beast alike, flailed, fell and slowly died When those shofar of a chosen people sang a song on high I saw the fabled walls of unbreached Jericho tremble before...
  8. Thoughts of a Henge Bird

    Henge Bird I hear the name of the Great Auk and I fly away to a cold, lively sea seething with fish and selkie kind There on an isle a bit of stone in the Herbrides 'neath the shadow of a pagan henge The flightless bird the last Great Auk soared, now gone to a sea in the sky. The Songs of Hollow Birds It is a legend told by the Henge bird the lost Great Auk of a bird carved from the dead heart of sea bleached pine It was a marvel to behold, to hear a song without soul music without...
  9. Lioness of Spoons

    Lioness of Spoons And the Donkey brayed a claim as bold as brass stupidity and ignorance an auriole of pyrite Oh, how he adored that trumpery crown And the Tiger roared a counter, sharp as glass truth in every cutting word a foundation of stone Oh, he stood so firm on the bedrock facts And day and night to and fro the volleys flew with no peace So the Donkey clad in all his pyrite glory went with the Tiger who deemed to descend from his bedrock perch And they sought her out the wily...
  10. Umineko inspired nonsense

    "People are only saved when someone understands them" they want someone to solve the riddle they are, the most difficult riddle in the world" applies to so many ships i can't even count. Just being able to see someone's true self and making them feel like their existence has a value, not necessarily for that other person but in general.
  11. Fell off my bike

    For some reason, a farmer has decided to plough the mud next to the farm drove. Here's a picture of how it used to look, mind you this is winter - and with the recent warm spring weather it had firmed up considerably I had stopped for a smoke and about 100 metres up the road was a tractor and a telehandler. After I'd finished up and was setting off again, I noticed the tractor was on the mud, driving towards me and the telehandler was on the concrete drove. I took my time approaching the...

  13. Tessellations of Turtle

    Turtle upon Tide Across the stars, o’er the dire Morpheus Strait, Turtle upon the Tide. Concealed by the Firefly Tide, a blur of starlight, Nod clutching tight, from the Doldrums to the heart of the Byways, each twilight they ride. Crossing to the lands of mortal sleep, napsands billow as a child sighed. Small mortal drifting, softly, delicate webs form the magic of the night. Across the stars, o’er the dire Morpheus Strait, Turtle upon the Tide. Willful things take to wing, others,...
