why I write
people who have it together don't need to write,
it is those who are in conflict that need to express themselves,
to get it out, to see it in front of them, if not....
speaking for myself,
I flounder and sink and sputter and throw up,
staying afloat is hard work,
writing is the work of a man who is quite neurotic,
simply seeking some balance in an inner world
not filled with light but chaos seeking direction.
