There are so many different reason’s for a writer to develop writer’s block. I have had this off and on for years. The main reason for mine is: too many ideas to capture on paper. That’s right.

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
