“I would rather be ashes than dust. I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”
~ Jack London
I write this blog because I hope to inspire you. I hope to vex your imagination, to provoke your soul, to arouse your passion, to seduce your ego, and to interrupt your comfort. I intend to use the force of my words to pull the rug of mediocrity from beneath you, and I intend to entice you into the wild.
But mostly, I don’t write this blog for you at all, I write this blog for me. It is a canvas onto which I have the freedom to splash the colours of my soul, where I have the power to lace my thoughts, passions, secrets, and fears into words, sentences, prose, and poetry. It is a place where I come to, to unclothe my soul, bare my heart, confront my ego, and be truly naked. It is a home for my vulnerability and a fount of my strength.
This blog is my own personal escape, a modest piece of estate that belongs to me and to my perspective. And quite frankly, my perspective is all I have.
