All of us long for something. A place. An experience. A state of being. My writing is my attempt to build the world, triumphs and realizations our hearts secretly long for. By immersing ourselves in stories about those desires we draw their realization into our own world. By writing in fiction or childlike whimsy and fantasy I hope to bypass our learned intellectual objections to what is possible and assumed. Our minds seek limitations, but our hearts must run free, not only for a better future but to truly live at all.
I've chosen writing over other arts because its virtually boundless in its potential for creation. Unlike a canvas or sculpture the only limit to my story telling is that of my own and each readers mind.
