Sometimes the lens of a camera will begin to grow wary from use. This is when I know I have to start giving it more attention, otherwise this will hinder me in trying to capture the view that I want. Either I will have to replace it completely or I may have to adjust my perception ever so slightly to gather the full contents of what is in front of me. That is what The New Flames has to offer: truth. Though it may be murky sometimes, everyone has their own truth and it is our responsibility to attempt to gather the full reality.


My whole life it seems I have been searching for a reason. A truth. I am not sure what that truth is or if I will run across it over the course of my existence.

I will be posting new blogs every week. I want to hear your thoughts, opinions, ideas and voices on everything I discuss here. Let’s search for new perceptions and set aflame our own individual truths.

The things they do, the words they use, the way they speak about someone who isn’t around, the way they carry themselves and how they make me feel.

Are you ready?

Close your eyes. Wait, don’t close your eyes. Keep reading…closing your eyes defeats the purpose of you being on here. Alright, keep reading and I’ll keep going with the prose I’m painting. Imagine, yes, that’s better, let’s start with imagine. Imagine, you’ve lived a life of comfortability. You’ve lived each day in and out being …
