Before you start your work, ask yourself “Who am I helping?”

The Cat

Blind George is a cat. And blind. He chases mice that aren't there and waits by a door he doesn't know is a door. When he closes his eyes, the world doesn't change. It stays the same. But George purrs.

You could take a leaf out of George's book.

The Game

The hardest thing you will ever have to do, is wait.

The Note

Firstly, I'm sorry for not speaking to you for a few days. I've been experiencing technical difficulties.

Secondly, I may be going away for a while soon. But I'll tell you before that happens and I -will- return. I promise.
I love you,

The Gift You Give

You can have talent. A gift. But that talent is nothing but potential. Only work turns that potential into something greater.

This gift is something you need to return to the sender.

The World We Change

Change the world. Just don't let it crush you in the process.

The Things Hearts Are For

A heart is there to make you bleed. To pass the time. To help you sleep. A heart is there to touch and feel.

And to heal.

The Constant Apology

I pass too close to you in a lift and you say "sorry" under your breath.

What are you sorry about? The potential for human contact?

The Nothing

What do you say when they say they’re fine. What is left when it all goes wrong. What can you do to make it all better. What will happen if it all goes to hell.


So what do you have to worry about? See your answer above.

The Suit

The mask covered your face. The artificial voice box warped what you were saying. The gloves covered your hands, hiding any last hint of colour. You told me that it obscured your race and any heritage it held. The sins of your father. The dreams of your mother. You told me if everyone wore one, then no one could judge anyone anymore.

I told you it looked terrible. You told me:

The World We Share

The world in the bottom of a glass. It’s the only world I share with you anymore. I visit each night after work at precisely 5:30pm. Stay a while. Enjoy the silence. And promise to be back tomorrow.

The Far Away

I’m sorry for every lie I ever told. For every tear you ever shed. For every time you needed me and I wasn’t there. For everything. Please forgive me.

The Long Ago

I used to carve your name in trees, hoping you would find them. The internet has made this so much easier than it used to be.

The State You're In

If you don't like the situation you're in you need ask yourself a question.

What am I doing to change it?

The Apart

Across a park. A stolen glance. A lifetime of wondering if I'd ever see you again.

The Time of Time

If winning is getting up one more time than you fall down. If strength is more than muscle. If time teaches us patience. And knowledge gives us grace.

Then we will go forward. Remembering the past. But never yearning for it.

There is so much more to look forward to.
