I love to write

I’m definitely a lover of written language. There’s something about being able to communicate with words on a page. There are so many ways we can combine the written word to express ideas, feelings, experiences, and so much more. Words are also very limited. There is so much that they cannot express – so much that is “lost in translation” between the mind and the page. I am bilingual. I speak English and Spanish, and can think and write in both languages. I plan to add other languages to my list in the future, but for now, I’m limited. Sometimes I feel I can express myself better in “Spanglish”, with a combination of words and ideas from both langauges. Between the two, I feel I can better express the grand ideas I have floating around in my head.

At any rate, this blog has one main purpose: to give me a place to electronically publish things I’ve written. I have a personal blog that includes my ideas on life and experiences I am currently living. However, that blog is more of a journal than a place for seemingly unrelated writings. So, I decided to start this blog to catalogue the stories, essays, poems and other such paraphenalia that I feel the desire to share with those around me. So, while this may look like the only post, it is only a preface. Under the “pages” to the left, you will find my writings, in English and Spanish. There are many more that I have yet to add, both already written as well as those that are yet to be. So, enjoy, and let me know what you think!
