Bonus 43: Guided Imagery – “The Birth of Venus” painting

A guided imagery of  “The Birth of Venus”, painted by Sandro Botticelli.   I’ll explain a brief summary of the contents in the painting and then I’ll try to  repaint a vision of it in your mind as I describe what I see.

You can view an image of the painting  in the Patreon post.

Bonus 42: Letters from College

These are some letters I wrote to my family and friends during my first year of college.    I’ll introduce each letter with the date, who the letter is written to, and summarize the general contents before I read each letter.    You will hear about my college fun times, curious incidents, study life, and work life.

Bonus 41: “Chemical XX-88” – a sci-fi story

This is a science fiction story I wrote in my first year college writing class.  We were all given one image and one quote and then had to write a story which involved both.

You can see my image on Patreon (man standing in ocean, facing shoreline, looking at factory billowing out smoke), and my quote was “no one, of course, even noticed he was missing…”

I wrote about an underwater, human-like species who is being threatened by something happening in the above-water human world.   Cue the suspenseful music : )

Bonus 40: “It’s a Long Story” – a personal essay

Enjoy a story I wrote as a first year college student, I was 17 or 18 years old at the time.   It is a strange court case that takes place in my brain and the main characters are Judge Ego, Prosecuting Attorney Id, and Defense Attorney Super Ego.    The case is about whether or not I should drink a beer.
