With over 4 thousand succinct, concise bursts of truth—categorized by means of subject from absolutes, adversity, anticipation, and authority to strolling, climate, why, and wisdom—each aphorism offers a fact that's short and to the purpose, by no means permitting trust or wish to switch the focus.
Explore inside those uncomplicated marriages of suggestion and language a provocative, occasionally profound, and regularly incomplete mirrored image of truth—for fiction surrounds fact, while aphorisms trap its essence.
My writings come from a place
Enriched by way of center and mind,
Where one stares into empty space
For hours at a time,
Pursuing the sublime.
