There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.
-Anaïs Nin (1903-1977)
This past weekend, I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and financial backing to venture out East through Canada to upstate New York…where I began work on my book and gathered information on an article for a friendly businessman. With permission, I conducted interviews, walked the grounds of a facility with a very tumultuous past and discovered answers about myself and my life that most people avoid asking altogether. To say that this journey was life-changing would be a very restrained description. The people I met, the friends I revisited, the stories I learned and the inspiration I found was not only cathartic…it was metamorphic.
Looking forward to sharing my adventure for many years to come and, in the same vein, creating something beautiful from something very malevolent.
To my first novel, bringing to light those that are still kept in darkness and all of them that helped me get here!
