This blog began as an experiment, as a channel for me to use the life within me to beget a more creative life. It is now a record of my attempts at making meaning and infusing my life and work with greater purpose. On this blog, I became a poet. On this blog, I taught myself the basics (and then some) of humanistic and existential psychology, attempts which include any number of fumbles, mishaps, and conceptual misunderstandings still recorded here. I studied the in’s and out’s of self-actualization, what it means to become a fully-functioning person, and live a soulful, creative, integrated life. And on this blog, I became the artist of my life the moment I realized that all of my magnificently hard-fought efforts were for nothing. It was here I became a proud master of none.
