Traveling Thoughts

By Trina Otero Every time I take to the road I feel surges of inspirational energy, and I daydream of blank pages to fill. Crisp, white pages in a book just screaming for me to write on. I know where my destination is, but I'm never sure what or who I will encounter along the … Continue reading Traveling Thoughts

Do You Believe in Life After Delivery? A Parable of Death, (Re)Birth, & Existence

By Trina Otero A parable/thought experiment from the Hungarian writer Útmutató a Léleknek: In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery.

A Writer’s Voice Doesn’t Need to be Found

She doesn't need to find it because she hears it 24/7, … Continue reading A Writer’s Voice Doesn’t Need to be Found

The Universe

Il Romanticismo della Mattina

Here I am... Still in bed. But it's only 7:13 a.m. I am, however, thinking about pouncing on top of my friend, who is asleep in the other room, just to scare the crap out of her. 🙂  I've been awake since 4 a.m. - I guess I drank a little too much wine before … Continue reading Il Romanticismo della Mattina

Love Letter #1

Dear Beloved, I am writing this because I need a way to express what is eternal and living within me. I feel as if writing love letters has become a lost art, but I would [and will] search for any way to communicate with you, whether it be contemporary or ancient. I don't know if … Continue reading Love Letter #1
