The Writer

Every writer is on a personal journey, but we share our stories with one another:


When I was a child I dreamed.

I dreamed music.

But my dreams were interrupted.

I was taken.

They tried to break my spirit.

Something wouldn’t give.

I survived with a story and a song.

I remain broken yet whole.

Come along.

I will share my journey with you:

About me:

I am a writer.  My first book, A Train Called Forgiveness, is based on my own childhood experience in a cult.  I was broken.  But that experience does not define who I am.  I am resilient.  I have dreams.  This blog is my dream palette.  

I am not trying to sell you anything.  My blog is a place where I explore my own writing and simply share it with you.  I am a musician and a songwriter.  I have been writing songs since I was a child.  I am a minimalist.  I believe less is usually best. I am a teacher.  I am a father.  I am a poet. Join me for conversations about writing, creativity, and minimalism.

Thank you for visiting.
