Writing has become a sanctuary of peace and an inviting home for self-reconciliation through the years. As I have matured, I’ve focused on literary craftsmanship, honing my technique, mirroring the timeless styles of classic poets/authors, and practicing earnest absorption of all instructional materials at my disposal. My journeying forays into the art of writing quickly transcended the dilettante’s realm of “pastime” into necessity. The more I learn of this craft, the more I perceive how little I know, which thrills me to no end because what I do know is that the way to mastery will never cease its winding years. Matriculating through the developmental process is the real joy! Personally, I believe writing is a transliteration of our unconscious yet innate intelligence’s prodding and it has a way of cathartically channeling obstructions to that higher spiritual intelligence outward and onto the page. With the creative use of our collective mechanisms for linguistic expression, not only can writing heal and enrich our own selves but can, by extension, commune with the humanity in other selves as well. In conclusion, this is the purpose of my blog: to journey into my own largely undiscovered wilderness, account for what things I find there, as inventively as I know how note those things upon my notepad, and then share my findings in efforts to map the vast country of self, to chart the vast dimensions of human experience.

I am very interested in connecting with other writers and would be honored to receive any sort of constructive criticisms. Take a look at the various types of writing (free verse poetry, journal entries, essays, etc.) on my blog page, and feel free to leave a comment.
