I have spent about twelve years now, getting better at writing. I began writing poetry in earnest a few months ago, and am gradually getting more and more into this. I'm writing a novel, and the dream is to write for a living. In the meantime my day job keeps me going. Please do visit my website, and check out my twitter feed.


Because I need you to have the life you want. You need to have. I need you to be OK. Every Day. All day. I need you to experience Joy. Flat out excellence. All the time. I need your totality to be superior. You have to have the very best. I need to do everything I can. To make sure this life of yours. This tilt at death. Gathering pace over years. To reach escape velocity. Is superlative. Could not have been better. ed. There is no stone I have not turned. No road I haven’t explored. No last thing I could have done. Looked at. Thought of. Acted. Attempted. That would have added one quantum. One iota. Of betterness to your lived experience. Because I am bound in earthly contract. I’m employed as a living being. I am here on planet earth to make sure. That, when all is said and done. When reckoning has been reckoned. The reaper has his harvest. And we sit on the lap of God. St Peter standing attentive. You say to me. That was great. Let’s do it once again. And my mission then. To do the whole thing better.
