WHO AM I?
Epicurus had his garden, Socrates had the streets, Shakespeare stood on stage; I’m just hanging out under a bridge.
Marcus Aurelius had his Meditations journal; I’ve got this blog.
It’s a diary that reveals my depth, a poetic platform, a vehicle that allows my voice to travel, and a spot for ‘the strange’ to no longer be strangers to one another.
Far from leading any armies or challenging the state, I’m just trying to sort out my own life. This means understanding what it’s all about in the first place; what makes it enjoyable, worth living, and well spent, amongst many other things.
As I’ll admit, I do feel kind of lost at times – in thought and in life. But I believe it’s all about the journey not the destination. Daring to go through the ‘woulds’ of life and follow the bread crumbs to our better selves.
I write from the perspective of a character simply known as “Boy,” because it’s relatable. I believe there is a child in all of us that remembers how to openly express themselves; to play, laugh, love, and dream; and to just be genuinely happy – something we seem to strive harder and harder for as we get older.
As I discover myself and ways to fill my pervasive sense of emptiness, I want to help others to do the same; I want to show people that we’re all capable of making a difference – while being different; and I want to leave the footprints behind of an example to be followed.
I still have much growing and learning to do – but you’ll be surprised at the wisdom that I have wedged between my wise-ass remarks.
So wherever you’re heading, I’m sure my blog can give you something to wonder about as you wonder. Or maybe you can give me some direction. After all, we’re all on this journey together.
