tree on the other side of the fence in the neighbor’s yard. Dust mixed with the sweat of my brow encrusted itself

Kindle Unlimited Thoughts
Like everyone else in KDP Select, I've been paying attention to my Kindle Unlimited page reads. When the new accounting began at the beginning of this month, I had 33,000 daily page reads. I had no idea if this was good, or bad. It was what it was. But I wa...

Bringing the World to Your Doorstep One Story at a Time
Introduction
"It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it." ~ Anais Nin 

Life is a journey on which we all embark from the moment in which we take our first breath. Since the beginning of time, the scribes, the bards, or the writers have been tasked with the laborious endeavor of recording the journey of the human race. I am among these.

I am a writer of the abstract, and a relentless propagator of the metaphor. I am a reader of the classics, and the contemporary.

The prose I offer forth into the world are pieces of myself, pieces of the world. The world I knew, the world I know, and the world that may yet be. I am an independent author as my worlds are my own. These are the worlds which I wish to share with you, the reader.
