I am born –
Into a certain genetic combination;
Into a certain social, cultural economic fabric –
That is not me.
I am trained, I am conditioned –
That is not me.
I am me,
I dream, I hope, I think,
I journey through life discovering myself,
Once found, I aspire perfection.
Then when I peer into myself;
I see the world just the way it is
And all the beauty it contains,
I am free from all the ties that bind
I bind myself to the world around me,
I revel in these ties that bind.
I see the barriers in my head dissolve
I see humanity and marvel at it,
I revel in being human.

I write what impacts me, what strikes my fancy; as I live my life day after day.
Once an idea takes hold, I go where it takes me as I try to shape it into some form of written expression.
Each idea is a beginning of something inexplicable. As I work with one, it may grow into fruition, go dormant biding time or just die away.
As I run with an idea through the annals of my mind, not knowing what would be fashioned from it, I discover something about myself, gain better understanding of the people and the world around me.
On this blog I have shared some of that experience as stories or poetry or essays. I have also added some quotes I like.
If you enjoy reading the pieces as much as I enjoy writing them, please share this-link with someone you know.
