A fish with the tail on fire

“In a darker aquarium, there’s a fish with a fiery tail, I now wonder if I’m dreaming or awake… I try to make some sense of it, but to no avail, I can feel my eyelids, but I can’t escape. Then, a whitey fish moves as the fiery one shines, It puzzles me as I try to […]

Within Me

Talking about life with a friend a couple of weeks ago, about life, about loneliness (self imposed or not), relationships, and also that feeling of helpless anger regarding world politics solely based on the economy and with little to no respect for nature and the human kind itself. Then, the coronavirus situation takes over… and […]
