Salutations, Etc.

If I understand things correctly, this is the post where I tell you what my site is all about. This is where I do my best to sell you on the idea that you should give a fuck about what I say. While you certainly should, it hasn’t escaped my attention that already too many people don’t give a fuck about what comes out of their own mouths, much less anyone else’s. Therefore, I won’t indulge myself in any delusions of grandeur no matter how brilliant my writing is. You don’t know me from Adam, and I don’t know you from Eve. There’s an apple that needs biting, though, and this feels like a pretty good place to start.

On this site, you will find three collections of my work. The first is titled “Studies In Gray.” and is a collection of short stories to which I will add a new story every other Wednesday at 1pm (barring any unforeseen setbacks and or writer’s block). The second collection is called “Blackouts In Blue.” and is a collection of poetry which will grow at my leisure. The third and last collection (for now) features two sub collections: [1] “Illustrations” which are all — you guessed it — illustrations from short stories, and [2] “Rokwart” containing all my other artwork including visual excerpts.

If, by chance, you do happen to find yourself giving a fuck about what I say, excellent. You should follow me. If reading my work makes you feel uncomfortable, even better. You should still follow me. If you find my writing to be worthy of a Third-Reich bonfire, my work here is done, and you should go fuck yourself* posthaste. And then, of course, follow me.

Because babies aren’t born smart, but they’re not born stupid, either.
