I’ve been fighting a lot lately. Fighting myself. God. Others. Wrestling with ideas, writing and work while seeking a better world, a better me. I’ve questioned myself while fighting with time that floats off into the night along with my energy and thoughts. I often go to bed exhausted from these battles. I’ve been fighting to write or not. Live true or not. Stand tall out from the crowd, or not.
All this fighting has left me bloodied. Hell, I’ve been bloody for 47 years. Some of these battles have ended up healing me. A divided self tears itself apart.
I hope to write a lot more in the months rolling in and to finish many pieces. My goal is to be earnest and seek truths while peeking behind the veil.
You might not like it. I might not. But it’s what I’ll need to write, and that’s an honest day lived.
I encourage you to do the same in your own life with your own words and art. And if you already are, then this is a tribute to the battles you’ve already won.
There’s a world I’ve been looking for: a world of justice, intelligence, integrity, art and beauty. Clearly from the politics and divisive daily news, I will have to create it myself.
I hope you like the work. I hope you’re fighting for your own.
P.S. You will see sci-fi out of me dealing with DNA and the evolution and de-evolution of the human; a story of a single father trying to hold it together in a dying factory town, and more. Subjects that may not appear connected or frontpage news. People and events on the fringe interest me and influence the whole. I will seek them out trying to serve their voices upon the page.
P.S.S. It’s been a long while since I posted anything. Please stay tuned for updates to the website and new content.
