“One writes such a story not out of the leaves of trees still to be observed, nor by means of botany and soil-science; but it grows like a seed in the dark out of the leaf-mould of mind: out of all that has been seen or thought or read, that has long ago been forgotten, descending into the deeps.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkein
I intend to occasionally post my creative efforts — prose, poetry, photography, drawings. Most of them will be crappy, though I hope not all of them.
Nothing is entirely original. Nothing is created in a vacuum. I know that everything I have ever done and anything I will ever do is informed by the genius, the vision, the mistakes and successes of others.
So, my words and works here are dedicated to all of the writers, artists, thinkers and teachers who have inspired me. Thank you.
