This is self-explanatory, I guess. Here I will share my ramblings, my thoughts, and my feelings. This is my personal space to debate with myself and question things. This is also where I will write my poetry. I feel it’s easier to say how I feel sometimes through verse and rhyme. I’ve been writing poems since I was about eleven. I even had some published in community newspapers as a teenager. I’ll have to dig those out one day. This will also be the space where I share my open letters to my children as they go through various moments in their lives.
