Note to reader: I am using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. I will not be posting the whole story, but I will be posting practical tips when dealing with someone, or one’s own self, as they are going through traumatic, or not so traumatic, experiences.

How today’s story excerpt can help you:

Theme: Sometimes we can do things on our own.  Other times, we need a little help.

Story Excerpt: (right side)

He wore protective armor,
which at one time may have been made of
stainless steel and copper,
but was not dull, tarnished, and dented.

His desert-cracked hands
held the reigns
of his might steed.
He said no words.

And as ominous as his figure was,
and as frightened as she was before,
when her eyes met his,
all anxiety disappeared.

She felt as thought
this mighty, frightening being,
was there to actually help her,
or protect her.

His hand, the size of a dinner plate,
reached out and head nodded
as if to communicate:
put your hand in mine.
