Why The Past?

As writers and storytellers, we are often too in tune to our emotions and sensitivities. However, it can lead to unique insights….

There was a time I looked forward to each day.
There was a time when I was ready.

I now know I wasn’t ready. 
I now know I won’t ever be ready.

The best is behind. 
The present is torturous.
The future is at best mundane.

I will never live as I had in the past.
I will never love as I had in the past.
I will never experience as I had in the past.

I finally understand why people live in the past – for some of us, it is the only place where happiness exists.


“Who am I?”

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales. I am an author of scarcely any renown. However, as a storyteller, I know who I am, and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to visit my website,  ShortStoryScribe.com and/or Amazon Author Page, if you are so inclined please purchase a copy and leave a review.

Thank you,

Joe
