Shadows and Light

Light comes in layers. Bright, revealing, glare that cast shadows. Shadows that seem even darker because of the light.

Embers of Hope

Separated from the familiar comforts of family and home, I have felt the winds of change transforming the whispers of the wilderness into secrets that only its rugged terrain could decipher

Dream Job

All day at work I had that feeling, that something was wrong, creeping up behind me. I caught shadows moving in dark places. Sounds just below hearing, lights flashed in my periphery, small signal fires, warnings.

Driving Through Time

In our haste to get to our location we routinely rocket past charming, delightful places. Sometimes we don’t even see them thanks to all the planning and work put into our highway system.

A Place in Time

I thought about lying. Nobody knew anything about me. I could have told them anything I wanted, and they would have never known better, this was before the internet, and I was a long way from Nebraska.

Unmatched

We aspire to become someone who will never reach as we are. In concrete squares of the crowd where they follow along, but not as I do and tell. We come chasing for the bearers of light, and to become a light.

Third World

There were already students sitting in the chairs when Angie and I arrived. She wanted to sit at the back because she doesn't want to be seen by the professor in case she falls asleep.

Intoxicated by The Darkness

Intoxicated with the night air, you feel like you could do anything and you wouldn't be judged. So you do. You sit in the middle of the road, you do handstands, and you let loose. It feels like you've been embraced by a warm blanket that is cool to the touch.

Coffee is Life

Let us compare coffee to life itself. Imagine the dark, bitter coffee as a representation of our toughest moments—the times when things get rough, and we can't help but feel a bit down. But fear not, my friends! Just like sugar sweetens our coffee, imagine those moments of triumph, the victories that bring smiles to our faces and fill us with joy.
