I crave and have been longing for something, anything, new to create and build upon. Personal essays allow me to explore my world and explain myself to that world. Part of creating the foundation involves sharing alleviating of secrets because secrets form a warm comfortability; particularly after being kept for so long.
Personal essays will reveal the humanity that links us all, put a spotlight on the dried and cracking leather hid of my baggage. Writing affects the physical world, re-shaping personal experiences. Writing allows me to make sense of an increasingly complex world, and it to make sense of me. In looking to the past I have hoped to forge new-ness. By editing and revising my story, crystalizing events into formative moments allows for the creation of sound foundations to go forward. As I have worked through this by analyzing my past, celebrating my interests and what they mean to me, and connecting through failures, relationships are deepened with friends and family, resulting in an increased quality of life. The creative process has me searching for the root cause of what I would like to ignore or disagree with in life, and to recreate the world through new contexts.
