Introducing the Author

Come, friend, sit down at the fire with me. Let us drink tea and talk.

Oh, you wish for an introduction?

Let me see.  The road I walk is rarely traveled, yet it takes me through groves of trees, over wind-swept seas, across searing deserts, to the highland steppes, and there at the peak of the highest mountains, I spread my wings to fly. Fly to the stars, to where dreams come true.

Only to fall back to reality – to the knowledge that our world is often harsh and cruel, where the fight for love and truth is often exhausting. I am a determined individual, who refuses to give up the notion of love and forgiveness and peace. My optimism tells me there is always hope, even if that hope is frail and the light is weak. It takes energy to give the light greater strength, so it can burn brighter to break apart the hatred surrounding it.

This is not enough, you say. So you ask, who am I?

I am many things.
I am a student,
a teacher,
a sibling,
a friend,
a possible lover.
I am spiritual;
I am gay;
I am an introvert;
I am genderqueer;
I am introspective;
I am peaceful;
I am compassionate;
I am optimistic;
I am a writer;
I am a scientist;
I am a poet;
I am a musician;
I am a composer;
I am a good-listener;
I am emotional;
I am rational;
I am logical;
I am an intellectual;
I am empathetic;
I am a survivor;
I am flawed;
I am a human being.

This is all aspects of me, but there is always more to me than meets the eye. Come, and drink tea with me, for what you hear here is only a small sliver of who I am. To truly know a person, takes an eternity.

Open the door, step inside. Here you find a forest, teeming with animals and birds, which sweeps up the sides of snow-capped mountains. Here in the small pocket of beauty, one finds the essence of my soul. A writer at heart, I delve deep into the finer details of humanity's spirit, and seek to share with others what gems I uncover. I find life exciting and full of interesting surprises, and despite the great pain that often confronts me, I persevere with the joy in my heart still bubbling, and the light of my soul still aflame. There is a time and a place to introspect one's self, but often enough it is best to not look back in regret, but leap forward in the present toward the achievement of one's deepest dreams. I am a wanderer. An explorer. One place cannot contain me for long, but to my friends and family, I remain loyal, for love is not bound by time nor place. Once cultivated and nourished continuously, it binds people together on a journey through the unknown reaches of life.
