Why This Space

The impetus behind constructing this space is two-fold.  Over the years, I have written a great deal.  Some poetry, some fiction, some research and sometimes, the forms are intertwined.  I guess it depends on what I am thinking about and how I choose to work through my thoughts in written form.

I created this space to house both my fiction and my research work.  It’s not so much that I am putting them out there for public consumption but more so, to display them for more or less my current frame of mind as I embrace an artistic side of myself I never really saw as potent in terms of communicating my thoughts.

I believe if I place my stories here then I have space for new stories.  I also believe I “speak” clearer when I write, something I’m not an expert at when it comes to speaking amongst people.  Finally, I firmly believe in the majesty of words.  They are transformational and can provide refuge for someone who negotiates his place in the universe.

At this time of my life, I am really delving into thoughts of purpose, my life purpose, as I travel and teach.  I think I may finally have a handle on this personal dilemma.  Through storying and storytelling I fulfill my life’s purpose.

At least, that is the story I am currently telling myself.
