My mind is in a constant state of 'jumping about'. I'm trying to develop my writing, more than my art and craft those 'thousand words' from the pictures in my head. It helps to deal with all the mental issues and stresses. I've learned over the last few years that sharing my thoughts has made me keenly aware I am not the only twisted, tormented soul out there. Actually, I am not unlike everyone else, just a little more in-tune and expressive with my 'darker side'.
We strive to be better than we were
each day given a ray of hope
today is but a foundation for tomorrow's
smiles of joy and yesterday's
longing for what has slipped away
time is but an illusion of the eternal now.
The ‘core idea’ of this tale comes
from Shawn Farrar. His premises, dealing
mainly with the ethics of organ donation and transplants sparked a domino
effect of ‘what if’ questions. Shawn’s basic
Idea of The Cure for everything, and the creative embellishing’s of that worldview
spurred my own personal creativeness. He
gets the lion’s share of acknowledgements, and huge thank you!
Thanks to my daughter, Elizabeth Garza
for her view on consistency, realism, and concept for the cover art. Many thanks to Damon Terrell and Jason
Prather; with their detailed eye on story-proofing things were more readable
for others. And finally, I would like to
thank my dearest of friends, Mike Cope who never stopped pushing, encouraging
and believing in the tenacity of my efforts.
My deepest gratitude to everyone
who helped me struggle against my mental health issues and self-doubt, to
accept that I could become a writer by simply writing.
