There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want

“The Pearl Territory”, ch 17 – Unknown (18+)

Unknown Voice #privatejournal  Another fuckin’ day. Do you have any idea how tired I am of having to go through yet another damn day? Of course you don’t. Your human scope is too limited.

What do you think? I liked the cover with the red hair (girl), but I said to May (designer) it is ‘TOO GIRLY’ 😱🤪💃💃, so she provided 4 more variants. Help! 😂😂😂 and 4 more: WHAT DO YOU...

Quite raw piece, 2000 words. I’ll attach the edited variant (in Word) later this week.  Circle Impro. Two silhouettes are sitting and drinking whiskey (in the private room of The Church ‘Advanced Way’).  Father Callum: …this is how our Universe works, Richard. If we’ll live in accordance with the laws, our life will come into a flow state, and we’ll be able to enter the infinite consciousness of God’s mind. You...
