A stranger in a strange land. A soul just passing through. An aspiring poet through Fortuity and agency of Happenstance. We'll see where my poetry leads me in the near and distant future—whether I am just a mere, accidental dilettante who enjoys reading and writing poetry or something more lasting and eternal (as a sincere "maker" of lines)? Only time will tell, we can suppose (for now).
