I've decided to start writing about the process I go through to create a story. I'm hoping it will be interesting, good therapy, or at the very least, a distraction from what I should be doing...working on the book.

From the vaults......

RELFECTIONS:

A young man stares into his reflection,
And sees an old man looking back.
Where did the time go, he wonders?
And how did we ever lose track?
Is this the same person?
That amounts to wondrous things?
How long did we spend dreaming?
Is this reflection really as it seems?
