Favorite Quote:
Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.
Cyril Connolly

For me, writing is exploration; and most of the time, I'm surprised where the journey takes me.
Jack Dann

You know that tear I shed over you?
I wiped it away with a stern finger and recollected my thoughts.
You know that song I sang in your mane?
I sang another in my name.
You know that verse I wrote about you/
I erased it and replaced it with a paragraph about how awesome I am.
You know that text conversation between us?
I deleted it.
You know that valley I fell in when I met you?
I climbed a mountain.
You know that ocean I sank in with your arm around me?
I learned to swim.
You know that sad song I sang over and over again?
I bough new music.
You know those memories I have of us?
I don’t remember
