Made of Starlight

Made of Starlight Written by Elizabeth A. Van Cleve Descending in to an abyss, I awoke, and it was dark; But fireflies flitted about.

The Last Question

  The Last Question Written by Elizabeth A. Van Cleve The bird asks, Where shall I build my nest? What shall I make it with? When shall I rest? When will these eggs hatch? When will my peeps flee? Where will they go when they’ve parted from me? What shall I eat next? Where shall I […]

Life- The Amusement Park

Imagine that you are at an amusement park. You are excited with childlike glee to be here. It’s a brand-new innovated park in which the “rides” are actual doors to whatever you wish to experience. The place is so expansive and massive, there seems to be no end to options. There are doors to any […]

Almost Raw Vegan Chow Mein

  O my goodness! I didn’t think vegan could possibly taste this good. The key to awesome vegan cooking is to be creative- treat it like an art- for indeed it is. Pay attention to your intuition. Be mindful of the ingredients you add. Like a singer that takes a song, learns it, and then […]
