“There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.” – Ernest Hemingway
I believe there is no better therapy than baring one’s soul for all of the world to see and it’s free (other than the cost of setting up a website and maintaining it). I can’t afford daily or weekly therapy, and medicating myself just numbs the senses – it doesn’t heal. I have my own process for dealing with my stress and anxiety, and this is just another tool in my arsenal to deal with the world where we reside. So this is me: bleeding over my blank pages for your enjoyment.
Am I different or just unique? Who am I? I am a writer, a photographer and a wanderer. I’m a son, a friend and an occasional lover. Most importantly, I am broken and need change. There are two lives that I see: one that I have been living for the past 47 years and the life that I want to live. This is the Point Of No Return. I can either choose to continue to live the sheltered, fearful life where I hole up in my home and watch the world go by, while occasionally yelling at the neighbor kids to turn that rock-n-roll down, or I can fight for the life I want to live. I want and need to make a positive impact on the world by entertaining the masses and joining those kids with their loud music, unless they’re jamming to Justin Bieber. That’s just irritating and wrong on so many levels, but that’s just my opinion!
Mentally, it’s time for re-evaluation and to transition from sitting down in front of the computer with blank pages, mocking and taunting myself, to fulfilling a promise to myself to fill the white space with words. I’m allowing myself to beat my demons into submission. Some of these pages will bare my soul for better or worse. I can’t afford weekly therapy, so this is my attempt to better myself by revealing the demons that plague me on a daily basis and, more importantly, work with issues that are pertinent to others who are in need or just curious about the state and well-being of uniquely different individuals.
Meanwhile, topics I will be discussing will also contain articles on topics such as Health & Wellness, Op-ed, Travel articles and periodical Misfit Happenings. Finally, I encourage you to peruse some of my short stories that I will be publishing through Amazon Kindle.
Essentially, I am a voice for all! So sit back, grab your favorite beverage, snack and enjoy my copious verbiage.
