A stranger in a strange world. A wanderer just passing through. And a tormented soul and poet in search of Parnassus. We'll see where my lines lead me in the near and distant future—whether I merely am just an accidental dabbler who enjoys literature and reading and writing poetry as a craft and as forms of intellectual and spiritual exercise, or if I am something more permanent and eternal as a genuine maker of verses from the mythological spring of Mount Pierus? Only time can tell.

"To have the soul of a poet is to feel with the mind, and to think with the heart (whilst being sensitive to the divine impulse of God)."
