I have a new fascination. You have no idea, dear reader, how bad that is for my writing. The muse is taking this personally. At least that's how the lack of coherence can be explained, in my opinion.
And so the fascination will be allowed to seep into skin and consciousness for sometime until explication and emergency extraction for the sake of writing sanity.
For now, let it be. I surrender.

I write. As I must. Words are my paints of expression on an otherwise bland canvas, my rollercoasters of delight on otherwise dreary roads. Entertainment or derision, they manifest in my varied states of being. Until theres silence. Even then, theres a dialogue of sorts that continues... in spirit? Who knows..
