I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I love it. I love the power of words and how they can change and affect our perceptions and behaviors. Words are the mechanisms by which all of our communication is derived. Without them, who knows what we would have become as an intelligent species.I'm also an artist, a philosopher, and an advocate for peace, love, and overall Just-Be-Cool-To-One-Another-ness. I enjoy elevating those that I care about as well as people that I don't know at all. The way that I look at it, we're a global community - a family - and we need each other to transcend the parasitic nature that is still so heavily built into our species.Eventually we will. I just hope to have a part in it.
