Poetic Musings

Thank you for taking this literary journey with me! Here I post personal thoughts on social issues, reflections about day-to-day living, and of course a healthy amount of stories inspired by the many games I’ve played over the years. I try to update several times a week, and genuinely appreciate the care and support of all who read these words, whether the post is fanciful or heartfelt.

The Where to Start page has great suggestions for first-time visitors, and all posts are sorted by the Categories you see in the right-side menu; feel free to narrow things down!

It's not that I have something to hide. I have nothing I want you to see. The closing lines to 2018's science fiction film Anon truly resonate with me, as do the major underlying themes of the movie. Does a world with total surveillance, with total information...
