In Which the Author Announces His Intentions

The purpose of this blog is to be a repository for my stories, both new and old. It is inspired by Requiem for Innocence, an excellent poetry blog. I don't expect I will be updating every day, but I hope to post at least once a week with a story, either new or old. The tales will be mixed, some of them personal experiences that I found particularly worth recounting, some of them old and new short fiction, and the majority will be recountings of things I have heard from friends - stories that have struck the artistic soul inside me. I hope to take small instances in our lives and show the beauty of life, in all of its wonderful strangeness. From the cradle to the cross, we live our lives, fighting each day, finding joy and pain along the path. I hope that my stories may mean something, if only to those who inspired them.

  1. The title of this post made me smile.
    It reminds me of, other than just about a million stories, something I studied in my latin courses at college. Don't ask me why. Or maybe do, it really isn't that interesting, probably because it is a dead language.
