The old Tree knew. She knew all that happened in the land, and she watched as the Tiny Monkey sat in the arms of her boughs and dreamt of many worlds. The Tree kept silent, though she knew a Secret that would help Tiny Monkey reach those worlds. It was not her place, not the…

Butterfly Effect: Words Between Silence
Words rarely come easy to me. Which is ironic considering how I identify myself as a writer. Yet, a wall sits between my heart and tongue. The whole concept of saying what I feel is foreign to me. Sure, I am aware that certain things make me feel a certain way – sometimes my heart…
Butterfly Effect: Open to Submissions!
The term “Butterfly Effect” was coined by Edward Lorenz in the 1960s who, based on chaos theory, suggested that something as miniscule as the flapping of a butterfly’s wings as it takes off into sweet, spring air could cause minute changes in the Earth’s air pressure, a chain reaction, a torrential falling of dominos that…

Sometimes you wish you could personally climb up the Great Clocktower of Time, grip the hands of the clock and yank it backwards. Go back to when things started to go sour so you could change the outcome. Sometimes…

I say the words Jesus Christ a lot for somebody who doesn’t believe in the notion of God. Or religion in general for that matter. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it for as long as i live; our perspectives are moulded by the experiences and lives we live. I don’t have anything against…
Emelyne: Quest for Self-Acceptance
Editor’s Note: Just in time to usher in the new year, here’s a submission from a fellow Monashian about her journey towards self-acceptance.

Social media indubitably aggravates it; leading many into ridiculously believing that beauty is only…
