Thresholds of Transformation is an experiment in creativity and self-discovery, melded together upon this evergreen digital canvas we call a blog. This is where I explore the Truth in art. In my observation and origination of attempted artistry, I dare to dream beyond the known and to wrest away pieces of the unknown void within and without. I am writing to tell stories. I am writing to prove that I am alive. I am writing to find out why. ~
~ The Archetypes ~
Stories ~ I write stories in an attempt to expand the boundaries of what I think is possible, and reflect on the gaps I find. // Stories are fictions penned from the mindful seeds of brainstorms long past. They are always absurd, and often unfinished in some way.
Musings ~ I write musings to pour half-formed pieces of myself out onto pages. // Musings are just that — semi-random ruminations upon muses, flashes of personal meditations manifested into words, pages ripped from my journal of existential maladies. Each musing is a riff on some aspect of my reality I have taken notice of and wish to articulate in some fashion.
Essays ~ I write essays to contemplate the art which captures me and the ideas therein that enrapture me. // Essays are where I can make critical expressions on the stories and ideas within books, films, shows, games, quotes, etc. Each essay generally has a trio of core ideals I wish to convey about the work of art, in a structure of escalating significance.
Ideas ~ I write these ideas down as to concretely organize them and better realize them. // When we were kids, my brother and I use to make games almost as much as we played them. We would write down stories, characters, missions, spells, and world maps within notebooks – the dream-skeletons of future board, card, and video games we’d want to play. Creating such outlines of games anew is a continuation of those childhood notions and those legendary notebooks.
Poems ~ I write poems to try to describe the indescribable and to elucidate the ineluctable. // I believe poems light the way of darkness. And I’m never sure why I do them, even after I pen them.
