About Me

I have reached a point in my life where I need to write, and this is where my writing ends up. Thanks so much for your interest and support. I need to write a proper About Me section soon. For now, I’m afraid this is it. 

“He soon realized that his disciples were not asking him for criticism, for which they had no use, but only for encouragement and, if possible, praise.”

 Albert Camus, The Artist at Work 

“If anyone comes to the gates of poetry and expects to become an adequate poet by acquiring expert knowledge of the subject without the Muses’ madness, he will fail, and his self-controlled verses will be eclipsed by the poetry of men who have been driven out of their minds.”

– Plato, Phaedrus

    Riveting, inventive prose dude! Are you still here in the Philippines? Bumped into your writing after you liked my Steppenwolf instagram post. Id love to meet up – Mark

    • Thanks so much Mark! No, I don’t live in the Philippines anymore. I’m back in the Netherlands now- a bit too far to meet for coffee and some book/writing talk unfortunately!

  2. I love your wordpress *GASP* ♡♡♡♡

  3. I follow your instagram and really love your poetry. I struggle with depression but work like this always encourages me to make an effort to create something, be it words or painting. Thank you :)

    • I’m sorry to hear that you struggle with depression. I hope you do end up creating things, small or large, because sometimes that’s the only way to transform negative feelings- to give them a body outside of yourself, in the world, and to be able to look at them with greater detachment/distance/objectivity. And if you end up creating something that *you* think is beautiful, then it can give you a sense that those feelings weren’t for nothing- and that’s important. Anyway, I wish you all the best, and thanks for your kind words. :)
