I meditate on chakra-opening songs. I use crystals that move the third eye. I'm reading about the planetary ascension. I practice yoga, because that's what turns my body into a receiver of divine energies. I eat only greenery. I spell mantras until I stutter. I mentally erase any thought of enmity. I evolve. My little toe accidentally meets the corner of the closet. Fucking hell. Don't get mad, or your vibrations will drop. Alchemize your shadow, says the dwarf inside my brain.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In August 2021, the group has 7.000 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
