I began writing as a young storyteller before the age of seven. I learned the benefits of cathartic writing only later at about the age of eleven. Writing out my pain relieved the suffering.

Maybe we all do.
The world of innocence and experience.
The world of youth and age.
The world of spirit and matter.
Wisdom and ignorance.
The world of family and friends.
The world of prosperity ...
