I have always been what you may call a "thinking person,” one who never simply took the world for what it was, but inquired as to why it was so and what it could be. During the brief amount of time that I have spent on this earth, I’ve learned that there are countless aspects of this life—from the laws, beliefs, and values that structure our society to the philosophies that govern each individual’s journey—that I feel compelled to explore. It did not take me long to realize that the wonders that surround this vessel of flesh and bone I was born into would only increase, as I quickly realized that one is never too old to learn. This book is a humble collection of my personal sentiments, reflections, and interpretations of the lessons that can be found in the ever-intriguing phenomenon that is existence. It is inspired in part by my personal beliefs and interests, and in part by insight that can be obtained not only from people’s actions, but their interactions with each other and with the world around them. Regardless of your age, cultural background, or religious/philosophical beliefs, I hope that within this book lies wisdom that will spurn you to contemplate upon your approach towards the universal quest for purpose and fulfillment.
About the Author
I am an artist, novelist, graphic designer, poet, and inspirational writer who is committed to making an unforgettable difference in this world that is sure to inspire future generations. A natural analyst and fervent thinker, much of my work is inspired by my contemplation, experiences, and interactions with the world around me and the society in which I have matured. I perceive messages in every aspect of existence, which explains the philosophical potency of my work. Furthermore, I am very creative, and have a particular knack for playing with words to generate artistic interpretations of a concept. One thing that I have learned in this life is that it is dangerous not to practice what you teach. That being said, I am intent upon inspiring the world not merely through my works, but through my life as well. I want the world to see the beauty and originality that results from living what one believes.
