In Times of Love and Hate

There are days in which I find myself greatly in-tuned with everything and everyone around me. These moments only happen when I’m surrounded by only a few random people. Be it coworkers at my job, my older brother, or even my best buddy from high school (I’m shocked we still hang out and get along…

Music Monday: The Adventure of a Lifetime (Part 3)

Hello everyone, R.S. Noel here with another post! Today, I’ll be sharing with you another music soundtrack that really gets my creative forces flowing. This one harkens a sort of Chinese New Year inspired-theme in me; one filled with adrenaline, the rush of new beginnings, and a sort of unknown uncertainty that captivates the soul…

Reflection Upon Ourselves and Society

Attention: this will be a lengthy post, but for good measure! It’s a short-story in which I believe accurately depicts the nature of ourselves and the society we live in. It was something I came up with while running at Descanso Gardens the other day. Not leaving anything to chance, I quickly recorded my thoughts…

Irony of Spirituality and Love

Today was like any other day. I woke up, readied myself, and drove off to school. I took notes in Statistics and my Accounting class. I studied, did a little bit of homework, and even went for a little walk. But that’s where my day changed forever. It’s no secret I love to go on…

Music Monday: An Ancient Tribal Fever (Part 2)

As I lay awake at midnight on the eve of this week’s “Music Monday”, I am reminded of a time in which I was feral in nature. When I was a young(er) man, I was truly a wild spirit. I remember all the trouble I would get into, all the times I was seen as…

During Times of Darkness

When it comes to the reality of our existence, many of us are faced with the demented reality of our demons. Not literal demons, but the parts of our lives we would rather not discuss openly with any other person. Not even our closest confidant. It’s almost as though the environment of secrets and deceptions…

Truth of Our Lives

Black and white, right and wrong, life and death – life is full of duality. It isn’t like the whisperings of secret societies or deadbeat governments. Duality is the ultimate truth. It holds no illusions, no contempt, or any other form of disdain. It simply exists. At it’s most basic form, duality is the reality…

Becoming a Writer

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing fine today; I’ve been busy with college work, as usual. But I found some time to sit down and write out some thoughts of mine which I wanted to share with you. As far back as I can remember, the moment I was old enough to create stories…
