Be dispelled in the strength
Of compassion, reason,

Under Glass

Description:

Inspiration comes from odd places… and sometimes things get creepy.

Excerpt:

As I was looking for art to help me write the story, I stumbled across an article from a few months earlier about a homeowner in the Lone Mountain neighborhood of San Francisco  – that’s the neighborhood around University of San Francisco, where I went to school – finding a sealed coffin under the garage floor during a remodel.
