An Introduction:
 
This is the religious, political, pretty poetry free zone. Here the words bleed as the
ugly truth speaks from the depths of its darkest, rawest heart; exposing scars 
and
the still fresh wounds of the imperfect flesh most 
beautiful in the humbling flaws
of the human unmasked, 
confessing secrets, thoughts and realities most haunting......

MANDALAS 
 

 

As random and "illogical" as they are, dreams always refer to the viewer's
hidden world.
Mandalas - ilustrations of dreams – are shortcuts to the
subconscious Self.

Tomasz Wieja is a photo illustrator. His photographs are bridges between
the subconscious and the fgurative.
They serve both as symbol and form.
The Author is strongly infuenced by traditions of surrealism
and psychoanalysis.

 

The Dreaming is the realm of both questions and answers.

                                     Hamilton's Heart

                                           Fiction by Anita Stewart

 

Jay Hamilton struggled to breathe as his wife, Sophia, stood
beside his hospital bed, weeping.

"Sophia, my ... heart will ... always belong to you." He held her hand
over his chest and closed his eyes.


Two weeks later...

With her lover at her side, Sophia listened as the lawyer read the will.

"To my faithful dog, Boomer, I leave all my money."

She gasped. "What do I get?"

A metal box was handed to her. The blood drained from her face as
she looked inside.

"What's in it?" her lover asked.

"His damn heart!"
