I have always enjoyed writing. My 10th grade English teacher told me–correctly, I think–that I would never be happy unless I was writing.

In truth, I haven’t done a lot of creative writing lately, but I have had seasons in life when I invested in writing poetry, short stories, essays. The links from this page will hopefully provide you some enjoyment and also opportunities for reflection as you explore the paths that I have previously tread.
