Why I Write

Salve friend.

Although you probably think that somehow you’ve managed to find your way here on your own, I can assure you that it was not by accident.  You were sent.  By Fortune, Chance, or perhaps even Divina Providentia, but either way, you most certainly did not wander in without a rhyme or reason.  This collection of works represents a cross-section of a select portion of my intellect.  A hint of an explanation, if you will, about who I am and how I see and experience the world.  Here are the things I see, think, and feel, and thus I take my pen and notebook and begin to write.
