This blog began as an experiment, as a channel for me to use the life within me to beget a more creative life. When I started The Used Life in 2017, I was searching for meaning, for a space to redefine my reality–and my place in it–on my own terms. I also wanted a place to explore my interests and foster my talents (many of which I’d let fall by the wayside and remain dormant for many years) in the hopes of imbuing both my life and work with greater purpose.

Today, this blog is a testament to the success of that experiment. It is also a catalog of my ever-evolving thoughts on creative living, as well as a space for me to share my poetry.
