Domino Number One

The window stands between me and the violence of rain

I watch it come after me

But I am safe

So, here we are. Blog post number one. A place for expression, thoughts, ideas, and observations. I gravitate towards the dark, sad side of life. Not to wallow, but to deepen my understanding of human suffering, ego, wisdom, and elevation. One of our biggest human mistakes is to deny the abysmal parts of ourselves, as if we are better than our own complexity. To be the fullest, most whole individuals we can be, shouldn’t we look in the eye of every part of ourselves? Or is that a monster of too many eyes?

Private journaling and creative writing sometimes feels like merely an echo chamber. As long as art, and self expression breathes freedom, I want them to be alive and well here. Not comfortable, but purposeful.
