Master of many mediums but slave to none. I am a writer, poet, swordsmith, sculptor and musician. I enjoy many mediums of art and whatever best expresses the soul of a person. So stay tuned, you never know what will extricate itself from this dome atop my shoulders.

    If you say you love, let it true. If you are going to love, love with everything you have and commit wholly. All else is folly and a fool's errand.

    Death so Lovely

    Imagine a love so complete that it transcends death and becomes new life for those who survive the loss. A love that says, "Even though I may not remain, you will my love. Here is your new beginning."
