Tales of Twilight
Mortality is easy to neglect. Nature programs us to cope with the inevitability of our own death by burying it deep within the layers of our consciousness. Occasionally, a hand of the shadow breaks through, squeezing and twisting our minds, forcing us to take notice. We act. Then we forget, as the hand is pushed back down and buried under fresh soil.
Many people have searched for the meaning of life, but clarity only comes in those final moments, when we walk the dark path that we all must walk.
Sometimes the answer hides in plain sight, closer than you think to look. Other times, you have to venture far from home to find it.
Follow me, my wife (Shelby), and my dog (Skutull) as we travel indefinitely around the world. I document our travels through the lens of a writer searching for insights into our shared pursuit to find meaning in life.
Lost in a Sea of Words
Writing is difficult. There's grammar, prose, dialog, and all the other literary elements you have to wrangle, but that's not the hardest part.
People read stories they relate to. If you want to write those stories, you have to be vulnerable, honest, and self-reflective to a degree that's both challenging to achieve, and uncomfortable to attempt.
This collection of stories is my journal as I venture down the path of an author.
