Introducing New SD Writer Skye (Melting Neurons)

Introducing New SD Writer Skye (Melting Neurons):
“The sun is a hornet sting, the moon is a muse shining a halo of opportunity in the falling dusk.”

[Melting Neurons resides in Wenatchee, WA where he lives with his wife and stuffed owl, they both hail from Bend, OR originally. He has lived in more than 75 cities across the country at various points including Boston and New Bedford, MA. His writing centers around a lifetime filled with adventures in schizoaffective bipolar, addiction, and the dichotomy of being everything from a corporate executive to homeless on the streets for years. Someday he hopes his estranged children will discover these pieces, and he can regain a relationship with them. He is a member of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective and enrolled in Wenatchee Valley College studying English and Creative Non-Fiction.]

Peripheral Visions – David Lohrey

Let’s say that most of us flicker in silence, David Lohrey is one of the few who flickers in a roar.
Read his amazing piece on Sudden Denouement:

“They’ve outlawed torture because it doesn’t work,

but they forgot to tell my little brother.
I went to Madrid and wanted paella but all I found

was frozen pizza.
I traveled to Saudi Arabia and knew exactly what I wanted,”

Photography

I am no photographer, just a keen observer of the waxing and waning nature, as well as the moon.

We are told that all art is a copy, a painting, a copy of the artist’s soul, a photo, a copy of the landscape’s soul. True artists catch them both.

Water does not resist

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Margaret Atwood

Sudden Denouement Black & White Photography Contest

I am excited to herald the Sudden Denouement Black & White Photography Contest:

Sudden Denouement has since its inception been interested in the synergy between imagery and the written word. We have been diligent in our commitment to maintain a specific aesthetic that compliments the strange world of words we inhabit. In the spirit of our commitment, we are launching a black and white/monochrome/sepia photography contest. This contest is a celebration of the medium, but also a means to showcase artists who share a passion for black and white photography.

Together

Give your heart
but to whom
Shall desire.

Allow your joy
to be received
with greatest care
and tunes of innocence.

Strengthen the bond of yourselves
but to surpass
the nameless peril
of Deception.

Name the mirror
in which you catch
the single moment
of deep, ungrateful
Love.
