I write to connect.
Life inside my mind is rich - vibrant and textured - and safe. Whereas life in the real world is an uncertain, constant struggle. (Well there is that one looming certainty.) I write to push myself out of my comfort zone. I write to reach, to touch, to explore, to disclose, and to discover.
Driven to create, I write as I do from reverence for the magical power of words and in fascination of how the magic and power may be intensified by particular arrangement.
My book CHAINS is a very serious focused work, so of course I have chosen as its accompaniment an evolving, in-the-moment, free-associative continuum of word delight.
