DARKNESS IS YOUR ONLY FRIEND

DARKNESS IS YOUR ONLY FRIEND

A room full of books.
You can feel them with your fingertips.
But you can’t see a single word.
Your senses are sensitized.
Every single noise is amplified.
But you can’t see light.
Or colors.
You are blind.
In a world full of color.
Your fingertips lead you.
Your senses guide you.
Darkness is your only friend.

PARADISE

PARADISE

To some,

paradise has beaches and sun.

To others,

it might have snow and trails.

But to me,

paradise is a good book.

There’s nothing like the feel,

the smell,

the excitement

of opening a new book.

Inside,

there are worlds to explore

and people to meet.

Open a book,

and live a life

like no other.

A WINDOW

A window to the world.

A window to beauty.

To snow-capped mountains.

To swan-filled lakes.

To pounding waves of the ocean.

To fields of flowers.

To adventure.

To romance.

Open the window.

Open your mind

to the possibilities.

Wake up your senses.

Can you see the rocks

along the shore?

Can you feel the ocean breeze?

Can you smell the flowers?

Can you feel the hot sun

on your face?

Can you hear the seagulls’ cries?

Can you taste the salty air?

I can.

A FACE

duc

A nose.

A mouth.

Two eyes.

A face.

What does it add up to?

Does it reveal the person inside?

Can you feel his heart?

Enjoy his humor?

Feel his pain?

See the world

through his eyes?

A person is not

the sum of his parts.

His parts add up to

much, much more.

FREE FALL THROUGH SPACE

What does it feel like?

To free fall

through the air.

To let yourself go

to the feeling.

To step back and fall.

Nothing but air

until you hit the water.

To believe in yourself.

To believe in the water

to cushion your fall.

Total freedom.

An escape from life.

An escape from reality.

What does it feel like?

I’ll let you know

after I hit the water.
