“The Woods”

“Skylar lay on his blanket under a sun faintly warm, like the smile of a once-beautiful but now aging woman, beneath a mackerel sky seemingly created by Aeolus sneezing in his bubble bath and sending the suds across the heavens. Large and small, dense and more-widely outspread, crescents, filaments, balls, balloons, wedges, and tufts; some with tails bent back like scorpions, others with trunks curled up like elephants; some with diffuse borders and others with crisp delineations, giving the overall appearance sometimes of a highly magnified cell structure, sometimes of an equally magnified distant nebula, and sometimes of a gigantic ice floe breaking into pieces that drifted apart one from the other.”

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.
