“Ocean Lover”

“Skylar could not make out the place where the surf broke. Low tide had drawn that break out into the blind distance. So, like a man with dead eyes, he only heard the water come. It came susurrantly, whispering, cooing, the audible equivalent of the back of a lover’s fingers running down one’s cheek in the after-love dark. The muted colors (rich with echoes of supernal beauty) and the languorous water spoke of a post-climactic world: one in which the fervid, energetic passion has been expended; in which the dazzlement and blaze of light has faded; in which the timpanic thunder and the brassy charge have been silenced: a world of drowsy-kitten comfort, stilled minds, and pervasive serenity.”

Richard Maddox

Richard Dietrich Maddox's writing focuses on the search for permanent happiness, the goal of finding paradise on earth, the attainment of human Enlightenment. His work, though fiction, attempts to convey the profound spiritual Truth passed on to humanity by Enlightened Masters. Maddox approaches spiritual wisdom from a Western level of experience, presenting characters to whom readers can easily relate, offering situations in which readers might well have found themselves. His work offers, in a style which those living in the West will find understandable, the possibility of blissful existence.
