Thresholds of Transformation is my journal of writings. These are the portraits of my personas, past and present.
This place is a continuous experiment in creativity and self-discovery, melded together upon this evergreen digital canvas we call a blog. This space is where I explore the Truth in art.
In my observation and origination of attempted artistry, I dare to dream beyond the known and to wrest away pieces of the unknown voids within and without. It is all nonsense, but it is my nonsense.
I am writing to tell stories.
I am writing to transform your conscious experience.
I am writing to prove that I am alive.
I am writing to find out why. ~
~ The Archetypes ~
Stories ~ I write stories in an attempt to expand the boundaries of what I think is possible – real or imagined – and sincerely reflect on the gaps I find. // Stories are speculative fictions penned from the mindful seeds of brainstorms long past. They are sometimes apocalyptic, always absurd, and often unfinished in some way.
Musings ~ I write musings to pour half-formed pieces of myself out onto pages. // Musings are just that — semi-random ruminations upon muses, flashes of personal meditations manifested into words, pages ripped from my journal of existential maladies. Each musing is a riff on some aspect of my reality I have taken notice of and wish to articulate in some fashion, if only to an audience of one.
Essays ~ I write essays to contemplate the art which captures me and the ideas therein that enrapture me. // Essays are where I can make critical expressions on the stories and ideas within books, films, shows, games, quotes, etc. that I enjoy. Each essay generally has a trio of core ideals I wish to convey about the work of art, in a structure of escalating significance.
Games ~ I write game concepts out to concretely organize them and better realize them within the spaces of my mind. // When we were kids, my brother and I use to make games almost as much as we played them. We would write down stories, characters, missions, spells, and world maps within notebooks – the dream-skeletons of future board, card, and video games we’d want to play. Creating such outlines of games anew is a continuation of those childhood notions and those legendary notebooks.
Playlists ~ I write playlists to share my sonic flows. // Playlists are small collections of music that are meaningful to me in some way, melded chronologically from a time in my life, or aesthetically from the themes of their expression.
Poems ~ I write poems to try to describe the indescribable and to elucidate the ineluctable. // I believe poems light the way of darkness. And I’m never sure why I do them, even after I pen them.
In all, here is where I try to turn my pain into power into love.
