Orchard Grove: Vincent Zandri

 

Cravings come in many different ways. Some crave chocolate while others like myself vanilla. But, food is not the only thing that people crave and when that craving becomes fixated on another human being we call it an obsession or in this case a moral or mortal flaw that will bring not only one person down but three others too. Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden of Eden when they ate the forbidden fruit of good and evil. Forbidden fruit does not always refer to the apple, pears or figs that might tempt so many but the indulgence or pleasure that some envision that is considered immoral or illegal.

The Saints of the Lost and Found: T.M. Causey

Imagine walking in the street, sitting with a group of people or just wandering aimlessly and being able to feel the sadness, losses and tears of everyone walking by or sitting near you. Imagine understanding why they are at odds within themselves, the pain of being deprived of a person in their lives, a failure that they feel guilty of or a person they tried to save but could not. Imagine feeling responsible for the death of others even though it’s not your fault and you did your best to prevent the inevitable.
