I remember when, it seems so long ago, I used to wake up, have a cup of Kauai Coffee Company coffee, go for a 2 or 3 mile run, do sprints, skip rope, hit the gym and with genuine excitement and passion — look forward to each and every day.
Those days were full of health improving and maintaining foods and activities. I compartmentalized my life keeping the stressors under control. I even forced myself to take a 20 minute nap. Smiles would touch more than my lips, my eyes would smile from the joy I had for the day and the gratefulness I had for being alive.
In retrospect, I thought the reason I enjoyed my days were because I was fit and healthy —- it would appear, looking forward to the day was the true reason behind everything else.
These days my life is not my own. I sold my soul, not to the company store, but to others whom I placed trust. I am pulled in many different directions, afloat on the ocean, given no choice but to follow the currents and whims of the sea.
The Comfort Of Despair is the soon to be released fourth novella in The Damaged and Broken Collection.
I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.
It is their stories I tell.
“Who am I?”
I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, 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,
