"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: past 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...flowing naturally through me, like oxygen does when I breathe.
I hope through my literary work you find love: for others and mostly, for yourself. Know for certain...that all art, comes from a spiritual realm and may this be as positive an experience for you, as it is for me.
I believe there is an artist of artists...an architect of everything....a writer of all who has written a completed story...one which includes us all: we, our lives, our actions, our thoughts...all in this one, book of life.
Don't be a mere phrase then...embrace your part in this amazing story of life and be a completed chapter, filled with amazing DEPTH....and most of all: always remain ORIGINAL!
