|Interact: Talk to Me|
How does one manage to talk about themselves? I find it's much easier to be modest and stick by the sidelines when it comes to the auto-biography. For far too long we focus on who we are rather than what we could be? So, if you'll allow, I'll digress to my latter point?
Who do I want to be? I want to be a friend, a lover, a parent, a god among mortals lost among the herds. I want to be the best, the brightest, the well-known. I want to be someone who isn't trapped by the world only because they think they can't dig themselves out of their own shallow graves. And above all else, I want to be loved. I want to love.
Writing is the primary source of fancy tickling, and whenever my muse calls, I listen addicted to its Siren's Song.
