The Writings of Sarah Jane Watson (1913-1994)

Thanks Nails. Actually, this was written by my mother many years ago (sometime in the 70's). I don't want to sadden hearts, just want to display a talent she never had a chance to display for herself. I hope to add more if the moderators are okay with it.

The Writings of Sarah Jane Watson (1913-1994)

Time Traveler Footprints at the dawn of time Wandering aimlessly in primeval slime. Then, as if drawn by an unseen force, Taking a mo...

Sight and its Attached Influences

Freedom is not just the prisoner’s dream or the patriot’s goal. True freedom is self-sufficiency, and allows no binds or bonds upon self-development. The influences of the world attach themselves to whatever we may sense, and lock those senses in a prison of pre-expectation. DRY ICE The brilliant ha...

Another Day

5 A.M. "R-r-r-r-ing". Another rude awakening among thousands and the monotony begins. Forty-six years have gone by since the first, and no apologies yet. If the times weren't so unsteady, maybe all of the racket would be worthwhile. There isn't even the automatic background music to soothe the rattl...

The Crossing

The sun was just beginning to spread a red glow through the haze of the morning light when Gorath awoke. He was hungry and thirsty, and was very frightened. He thought of the journey he must make if he wasn't to starve, and he shook with fear. There was only one known region that had any food or wat...

I am retired Air Force (U.S.). At best recollection I started writing when I was around 11, writing off and on through to th...

Got a Light?

GOT A LIGHT? "Got a light?" This question is the absolute symbol of the paradoxical human mind. In the same manner as the tiny lemming drive themselves across the countryside into the sea, many people seem to purposely drive their bodies to destruction for no apparent reason. For every effect there ...
