About Me

I write because I often find myself bothered by a story that won’t leave me alone until it has been released from my brain and into the world. Most of my stories are true or inspired by true events, and all seek to reveal an underlying meaning that is not always explicitly stated, but can be felt by the deeper part of the self that already knows.

I am someone who seeks to live as if today is my first and last day on earth. First in the sense that I have no past to encumber or influence my present. Last in the sense that I have no future that needs to be built up or made greater than that which I already have.

I am someone that has had everything and lost everything and found peace in neither the gaining nor the losing. I am someone who learned the hard way that true happiness can only be found within–it is the stillness inside each of us, the eternal peace that can be found by letting go of all extraneous things. And indeed, most things are extraneous.

Enjoy.

New stories are typically posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays, except as life occasionally intervenes.
