See The Dark

Twenties-060713

Tonight I want to see the Forces, extension of their Source. I want to close my eyes from the light, and really see.

I sit in the car, and I open my eyes, reaching, reaching, to the fathomless end of existence that lies beyond my small safe enclosure. All I see is utter blackness.

And I know that I am truly seeing.

The taxi driver was old and rather shriveled, with a crop of white hair fringing his head.

Ah, I recognize this one, I thought with relief, hurrying to open the door. If I recall correctly, he knows Lakewood. You would think that a taxi driver, being that his/her job is, well, driving, and being that the town they are driving in is, well, Lakewood…
