Explore inside of those uncomplicated marriages of proposal and language a provocative, occasionally profound, and consistently incomplete mirrored image of truth—for fiction surrounds fact, while aphorisms trap its essence.
My writings come from a place
Enriched through center and mind,
Where one stares into empty space
For hours at a time,
Pursuing the sublime.
