About Me

photo my story

 . . .

We’re in desperate need of time and simplicity. So the scarcity of time and the fact that I find it hard to be simple led me here. Though there were two reasons I started this blog; to share all types of stories without needing the “permission” of a publisher or the “acceptance” of an agent, it turned out to be a blog of poetry. That was odd as I had never written poetry before, but the soul wants what it wants, I suppose. And, to read interesting stories in endless blogs by fascinating people (like you).

. . .

This blog originally wanted to share short stories, free verse poetry, and extracts of longer stories; to take you away to a different imagination without leaving your home. My wish was to entertain and to stimulate emotions, so when you’d visit me from time to time, I’d take you on a journey; whether brief or long with the desire to make it worth your while – or at least the intent to put a smile on your day. And now I’d like to shift the purpose to a new journey, one I welcome you to take with me.

 . . .

Teaching for many years, what I found most interesting was the moment students would let me into their world. The stories they’d share. I continue to teach but steal some time to write my own stories as well. No about my interests, the thing is they are too many to mention; so I will not bore 🙂

. . .

Finally the title “In the Depths of Darkness” was chosen on a difficult day but since that day no longer exists, the title was changed to fit the new purpose. Nevertheless, days which are difficult can also be a blessing in disguise. So, the blessings stay, like true friends stay – and no matter what life brings, or throws at us, as long as we can see or imagine the light at the end of that tunnel, we will get through it all in one piece. Keep in mind that everything will be as it is meant to be in the end; no need to fear the darkness.

Thank you for the visit and, bless you and your loved ones!
