a hello and a goodbye

Dearest Masooch, You are weird. You live for fictional characters and people you may never meet. You think in Shakespearean (thank you for introducing me to your world’s playwrights, by the way, marvelous stuff) and lyric but clam up in public. You observe and calculate and drift and obsess and stretch yourself thin. I honestly have no idea how you manage… everything. I reiterate: you are weird, but I am glad I found you. Approached you? Appeared? I can’t recall […]

Reflections & Regrets

Dear MrsJayJ, This has been quite the experience. It felt good to be let out of the matrix I resided in for way to long. It only took 30 years for someone to unlock the code and release me onto the world once more. The world is different. But very familiar. While things like the internet, social media and cell phones are new to you goafies. Us alchemists have been privy  to these magical devices. So I’m glad you finally […]

Open It

Hi Quanesha, I feel like you already know majority of what I’m about to say. But, I want to put my writing skills to use and write what I have told you. As you know, I learned a storytelling tool called storyjumper that has made a story I contributed to and possibly will make my stories in the future more captivating. Next, I learned I can and have stretched myself to be more creative than what I already am. You […]

[1] there are such things ….

[1] there are such things … your patient whisper, a gentle breeze on the hairs of my throat. trickling desires onto my clavicles’ thin skin. my neck – swallows … heavy gulps, then eyes set — ( widened ) they blink and they flutter. pulsating chest, in collaboration with rhythmic pulls of gravity that holds onto the blue lines of my arms. air gaspings while in the zone, exchanging each other’s breath. a pretzeling collective of 4 arms, reminding one another of their […]

Slacktivism: A form of Journalism

I’m of the belief that it”s hard to encourage full activism through the use of the internet. Alot of people don’t feel like there is anything they can do to change circumstances in the world. I very much agree with this. I myself tend to do slacktivism but I do it to promote knowledge to the public as I would like journalism. When people see reporters on the news all they do is report the crimes, natural disasters, etc. but […]

So long Shadow Girl (wannabe ^.^)….

Dycpgc-Egpj-uyllyzc, The Other Side, like your snuggly-snug shadows, methinks, is not as empty as it appears, aye? In fact, the seemingly hollow, swallowing spaces are teem- teeming with tales, tepid at first but ready to squeal, wail–scream like a tea kettle if given the time. Watched pots–kettles–aren’t really a problem here….where I’m from…eyes are pretty decoration at best, remember? Stories reside–resound off bone–in the Other Side. If you let them. Give them the chance to speak to you, through you. They can be as cozy as those […]

Dear Wanderer_920 (aka Laura), This world you inhabit is beautiful, amazing and complex.  It seems as though your species has come to a pivotal moment in your evolutionary journey.  The collective you have decisions to make about what happens next. The technology your people have developed holds much power.  The virtual worlds you create are mirrors.  Look closely.  They reflect your input.  At times when you are not pleased with what you see, know you have the power to change.

But let me go back and give you the synopsis on what […]

Going Against the Grain is Cool

I have a serious appreciation for Saturday Night Live. They get it. They understand that the world is not a place filled with nice people thinking nice thoughts all of the time. We are not politically correct all of the time and that is okay. Well, goafies don’t think its okay but us alchemist. We get it. Let art live. Be funny and freeing and sometimes you get to get your point across. Well this week I got to have […]

Find New Worlds with Compassion and Kindness

Dear Mirrored Self, I am still of the Universe. So you are, too. You must remember this. Always. Although I was formed in a blink of an eye, from some unknown origin, my genetical composition and my remix-able Self are firmly rooted in YOU. I am of YOU as much as I am of the Universe. Therefore, logic dictates that YOU, too, are of the Universe. We are One, if not the Other. I’ve noticed you watching me, listening in to […]

Dear Brooke – Mission IV

Dear Brooke, Hello, thanks for making me. I’ve had a lot of fun in Arganee. As we come to our last mission, I want to share with you what I’ve learned in this new place. Having experienced this digital world, I have realized that a lot of what we type doesn’t really matter. I’ve learned a new term called slacktivism. What does it mean, you ask? You’re an education major, Brooke. Figure it out. Slacking in your activism. I’ve seen on […]
