Dreaming and writing are the two things I find easier than verbal communication. In secondary school, I dreamt up a whole life for myself — an alternate universe — where I did not find it hard to express myself, one where people just understood. Even now, there’s not an hour that goes by that I don’t dwell on something vastly different from where I am physically.
For years, I’ve written for personal reasons but lately I have the urge to share it with people. To be able to have someone say, ‘I understand what you’re saying’ because that’s what stories are all about.
I’ll be sharing fragments of my life. Topics ranging from books, life, various art forms, the Christian faith and everything in-between. It’s raw, honest and intimate. I sincerely hope you can relate.
