Scoop

The computer slowly sucked his eyeballs out.

Scooped out the whites like a teaspoon working a hard-boiled egg. The whoosh of cyber connected/disconnected him.

Like Gollum and the Ring, the virtual world drew him in until he couldn't leave it alone.

Finally becoming invisible.

Meanwhile, the shaman writes with a fountain pen.

Words flow from sky, rain, through poppies into brain, thought, bone, muscle, tissue
and out onto spiral bound paper the words ever spiralling.

  1. Do I take it from this, then, that you write your entries by pen and then type them up?

    1. For the most part, yes. But then more ideas come along as I type.

      I like both really. But a notepad is great for when you're out and about. Reduces the anxiety about backing things up. Handy for when ideas come from out of the blue: like in the middle of the night for example.

      Thanks for reading Kim. It means a lot.

    2. I read them all, even if I don't always comment :)
