About

ATHello and welcome!

The vast majority of this site contains a collection of selected writings from my journal  which I wrote in from the ages of 14 – 18 (1993 – 1997) but, also contains some writings  up to the age of 21 (2000). I do not consider myself a writer or a poet, but I hope that  in re-discovering my past self though this blog that I can better appreciate the path I  have walked, who I am today, and understand where this past and present/future self  overlap.

 Thank you for reading!

“Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop”. – Haruki Murakami

  1. NO artist ever really things of themselves as an artist..but ever true artesian realizes all life is art and life is all about creating different things. We are all people with an ability to imagine something…more. something different. Something that expresses ourselves and hopefully may make someone else life better around us..and hopefully releases our emotions or at least express’s them in a positive manner, that harms no one. expect for maybe the viewer, but that is the viewers fault for not understanding or being able to interoperate the artists self expression. Don’t be afraid to express yourself…I fight with that still, but a lot less that I used to. People want to censor me…and it hurts especially when they are supposedly my friends or family. I am always glad to meet another artist..and I know you are one, because of just the few things I have already read…and because I believe every creature is its own art form… We must free ourselves and express that..in any way shape or form. 🙂 I know you are an artist because you do not see yourself as one….real artists do not like labels and they do not place label on other things…real artists see all life just as they see themselves….as equals. 🙂 As nothing…and as one. They realize the world would be nothing without each other…and that we are really small compared to many other things in life…like the earth and the universe. We need each other, to make it as far as we can in the life we have…which our life spans are not very long.so we must do the most with our time in the most progressive and positive ways…to not be stagnant and to seek out inspiration and positive people to collaborate with. DO this and your life will become more positive, I bet you do already :). I look forward to reading more of your works and creations. 🙂 1love, 1heart.

  2. Thank you for the words of encouragement and for calling me an “artist.” 😉 I especially like your particular outlook that, “real artists see all life just as they see themselves….as equals. 🙂 As nothing…and as one. They realize the world would be nothing without each other…and that we are really small compared to many other things in life.”
