I have this kid in me. He sits deep inside of me. He is full of toxicity. He is the font of my deep-seated insecurities. And, he has a penchant for self-pity.
I know where he lives. I know who has him. But, I do not know how I will get to him. Not yet. I do not know what I am supposed to do when I meet him. Kill him or heal him? I do not know what I will accomplish upon meeting him. And, sometimes I worry that by seeking him I will become him.

However, after reading Austin Kleon’s “Show Your Work”, I have decided to start sharing them.
The topic and writing style are vastly different from what I have done before. But, there is nothing I can do about that. This is how it wants to come out. The stories do not arrive in a linear fashion. So, you may find yourself bouncing around in the timeline.
Here is what I think will be (at least first now) the first chapter.
