When you start any journey, you might ask yourself why you’re doing it. This is particularly true, I think, of those of us who decide to write stories down and share them. There are many answers, but Walt Whitman said it all when he set these words down in Leaves of Grass:


That you are here – that life exists and identity,

That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.


Come along with me. Let’s see where the road takes us.
