Going Behind the Veil to Write a New Story

Behind the Veil By: White Dove I wake up today between worlds. I'm not the survivor I used to be, because I don't see victory in fighting anymore. Not on the material plane.

Renewal by Design

Renewal by Design By: White Dove Renewal, for me, happens when I enter the unknown.  For me, it’s “renewal by design” as I intentionally trade the safe route for the unknown.  One early spring-like day, I was on my first “dot-dot-dot” road, which means sometimes there’s a path and sometimes not.
