...and it's time to revitalize it! That is why I am here, to once again ignite my passion for writing. I am a 43 year old guy living in Albuquerque, NM raising a daughter and working for a living. I was once an avid diarist and have reams of journals starting from age 15 on into my 30's. I go back and read what I was able to create back then and sometimes can't believe it was me. I miss those days and need to get back to that place of joy I once found with pen in hand and a sea of paper before me. I am hoping to learn from all of you, to be inspired and challenged, to discover new ways to express myself and to hopefully contribute something worthwhile.
