A Few Strokes of My Pen is a collection of some of my favorite pieces. Some are fun, others more natural, and the rest are just personal selections that I believe you will enjoy. In the writing of A Few Strokes of My Pen, spanning about a two-year time period from 2004 to 2006, I learned a lot about people, myself and life in general. I suffer from major depression so writing is one of my favorite outlets. By allowing myself to write what Im feeling or seeing others go through, it helps to ease some of the intense emotions Im dealing with. You will also see a great deal of my imagination at work as I take off into another realm that is foreign to me: tenderness. With just a few strokes of my pen Im able to create a world other than the one Im living in.
