Tim VS Tim

Last year I was in a car accident. Nothing too dramatic, three lanes. Me on the far right, the man in the far left – and we both merged into the middle lane, and each other. I had merged into a very creepy 60 year old man named Tim. I stored Tim’s details in my … More Tim VS Tim

Rust & Stardust

Intimate relationships, much like the cosmos, have laws. Laws of attraction, laws of chemistry, and laws of physics.

Vulnerable desires? … More Duality
