The Other Side- Alexis Jamil

My feet dangle approximately 93 feet above a bed of lucky green trees that are in full bloom. I focus on listening to the sound of the birds in the sky as I look down and share the same view. The sun is kissing my skin as the warm breeze hugs me. I think about how rare it is to find something that moulds your resting face into a gentle smile without really realizing it. I smile even bigger. A perfect array of clouds form just before me and showers everything in sight, including me.

Moment Of Truth

  By: Omar Masri June 28th, 2020   I live for the feeling of watching a movie, interview or even listening to a podcast, where a scene, an anecdote or an explanation somehow summarizes who you are as person better than you have ever been able to do before yourself. This doesn’t mean you two are the same person or have the same external factors driving these feelings, but rather it seems you’re both processing the world the same way. Within this relatability, there is some strange level of comfort in knowing that it truly isn’t just you. To give you a little bit of an idea of who I am, I’ve personally had this feeling from listening to people...
