About

I’m holding a public poetry reading in Portland, Oregon, August 8! Come by if you’re around.

What is my story?

My story is my past. My story is my future. My present. … My predicate?

What is my predicate?

I am a writer.

By writing, I am a writer.

My action is writing.

Be writing,

Being.

My writing is my story. My story is my act of writing.

Acting is affirming.

Not acting is denying.

Who will ever know I am/was/will be a writer if I do not write?

If you wish to be a writer, write.

—Epictetus
