"I still enjoy a great book in my hand...the sound of the pages when turned, the smell of the the printed paper ..the images which develop in my mind as I read ...like a co-creation between reader and writer; unique to that combination...no two people will ever imagine the same pictures, as they read the same story...millions of possible imagery...the story then, becomes yours...in your mind, in your heart" ~ Judith Espinosa
Inside me was always the desire to create.
As far back as I could recall....deep beneath the mundane layers of who I was being shaped to become, passed the influence from family and schooling...was a natural born writer, poet, artist, philosopher, crafter...in the raw; unexposed, untapped.
I knew early on, although too young to understand the depth of what I carried deep inside me...that I was born with an innate love for writing. As I stumbled through the many paths of life, this inner passion grew stronger each day....as it continued to be birthed.
It was always about expression. Perhaps a reflection of some divine source. I never knew where the art was coming from exactly; I learned to draw, before I could write...and I was writing philosophical passages, before I could master any language. I didn't know at the time what was transpiring. I only knew I had a natural need, a thirst....for expression; through art, poetry, writing, crafting, philosophy. My writing however, never planned...it just flows naturally through me, like oxygen does when I breathe.
May you find....enjoyment, peace, joy, relief, wisdom, growth...and all the wonderful reactions that art provides, in my work. Most of all…I hope through my literary work you find love; for others and mostly, for yourself. May you also find appreciation for all artwork and for all the artists in the world...and may you lend the respect all artists deserve. Furthermore, know for certain...that all art comes from a spiritual realm; may that be a positive experience for you, as it is for me.
I believe there is an artist of artists...an architect of everything....a writer of all things, who has written a completed story; one which includes us all...we, our lives, our actions, our thoughts...are all in this one book of life.
Don't be a mere phrase then...embrace your part in the story of life and be a completed chapter; filled with amazing DEPTH....but most of all, remain ORIGINAL!
