For Shadow7-7Save my spirit from eternal emptiness,Help my soul be filled with love,Allow creativity to course through my veins.Don’t ever view the flaws within a being,Or let go of all that holds a piece of heart.Wherever you are keep hold ofSeven inspirational sinsSeven impossible talents.
This Being Lied to MeTell me the truth How am I this filthy being?I don’t aim for such low thinking.State to me how it happened.Being alone you felt a painEveryone else became a gainIgnited your heart with fire, my friend.Never again had you play pretend.Gone astray from your pathLittle time had you last?It’s not fun to be a pastExtending your future you had askedDropping sorrows was my taskTomorrow will be a better dayOnly few will ever pay "Make me go blind from the flood of needEven this being lied to me.
It Won't StopImagine being on the topThinking of peace so wideWhen it starts to rainOn top of a calm dreamNever do I think things through,Try to rewind to how it once seemSupport the growing storm I couldn't controlTorturous and broken of a soulOpen the gateway for intentions wellPlease release me from this awful hell.
Will it Stop?Wherever I go, wherever I lookI never seem to understandLittle evil around my homeLook in the mirror for my friendIt won’t let go of the person I choseThinks it knows the pain I showStep closer for a better lookTalk to the air it breathesOpen my mind to hear it sayPromise I will never leave.
Lies Of A BeingLook me in the soulInstead of within my eyesExplain why I am beautifulSupport me when I need helpOffer me a smile when the sky is greyFind me in the dark on the wayAccept me for who I amBy my side forever linkedEven when times are toughIt will never tear us apartNever allow us to fight a warGrant us eternal happiness.
Galileo Play Scene 3/3Scene 3(Court)Judge: Court is now in session. Will the case of Galileo versus the Catholic Church please come to order?Galileo: I do not see why I must be here.Pope Urban: Quiet, my friend. This is the only way of settling this dispute peacefully.Judge: You have gone against the holy law. How do you plead?Galileo: Non-guilty, your honor. I was only trying to make peace with the two subjects I hold so dear.Pope Urban: You have insulted the Bible with your small tweaks. You went around spreading this abomination of an idea. Therefore you went against the holy law the church values most.Judge: Is this true, Galilei?Galileo: It is true I had tweaked the book. But only one line. I did not mean much harm.Judge: I see.(The judge pauses)The church is in charge of our holy book. Unsupervised edits to it is an unforgivable law, to Catholics and God. I, myself faithful in my religion, stand offended from the very thought. You must hereby renounce this crazy idea about the sun as
Galileo Play Scene 2/3Scene 2(Galileo stands outside the church courtyard.)Galileo: Come one, come all. I have with me a new interpretation of the book. What is it you ask? The Earth no longer holds the title of the center of the world. The honor now goes to the sun.(Pope Urban enters right)Pope Urban: Oh dear, merciful lord! You are at it again?Galileo: I will go at it until the two are one.Pope Urban: That is not god's word-Galileo: What is god's word? How can you tell what he says and what he means? They can't both be one of the same.Pope Urban: Se what this idea has done to you? You are questioning his holy words; the very words you have once took pride in following. This is not healthy, not for the soul or mind.Galileo: I still have honor in my religion, Urban. I just wish to make the Bible more truthful.(Pope Urban grows furious)Pope Urban: You are saying it is all a lie?Galileo: I am not saying that it contains lies. It just has out of date facts-Pope Urban: Out of date? You wish to
Galileo Play Scene 1/3Scene 1(Galileo stands before Pope Urban in a church)Gailileo: I am a scientific man, but a religious one none-the-less. But I believe this portion of the holy book to be wrong. The Earth, long believed to be the center of the ever changing universe, is in fact, not. The moon we all hold dear have proved us wrong! Different valleys and mountains, craters and even dust change each day. The same went for Jupiter's many satellites.Pope Urban: Get to the point, Galilei. I do not have all day.Galileo: You don't see what this means? The Earth is not the center. The great star, the blinding sun, in fact, is.Pope Urban: Are you mad? This goes against god's word!Galileo: Not God's word, Urban, but the holy book's. If we tweak it, change it even, not only would we have religion and sciences agree, we would be revealing the truth of the universe!Pope Urban: You have gone mad! You go against what have been and always will be what the Bible teaches.Galileo: Please, Urban, this is the o
Echo's Sins: Prologue A sin is a part of every soul, every heart and mind. It is what gives humans each a sense of right and wrong. It influences the decisions made by an individual. A sin is not always deadly or looked down upon. The seven sins; lust, envy, greed, pride, gluttony, sloth, and even wrath; they are what encourage the light of the world. But to have the light ignored is when the sins are truly a problem. They control one's life, one's own sense of direction. It is almost beyond impossible to look away from the sin; to not be manipulated by it. The world of Echo, a place parallel to our own, knows this all too well. In this world, where the sky is green and the seas' blue, there are people unable to live without these sins. They are considered slaves of seven princes that can control darkness and fire. They are looked down upon simply because they are different. But each slave lived a life no other could imagine. They live to with a strain o

The Grand Circle - Grizzly CreekLeaving Denver we climbed up into the Rocky Mountains, slowed by our capricious car. Through deep tunnel and vaulted vale we crossed the continental divide. Then down, down, endlessly down as our ears ached with the pressure change. For my young son it was all a bit too much, so we turned off at a rest stop to stretch our legs and relax. We ended up near Grizzly Creek on the Colorado River, an oasis of calm in our hectic day. With our magpie guide we walked a winding trail down to the river. There we sat for a long spell, drinking in the view. Then, as if reading my very thought, my son knelt down and selected a pebble to throw into the river. We stayed there for quite a while soaking up the sun, taking great pleasure in the search for beautiful stones to return to this glorious river. on a river bankhe picks through mud with care for just the right stone —leaning out, fearlessly farhe casts i
