The Story of Stuff

Somewhere it all has to hang together. There is a connection between what we feel and how we live, or at least try to live. After a long time of not writing at all, mainly because I was too exhausted and stressed to, I found myself writing poetry. Even I was surprised at how vehement it was. The Story of Stuff is telling a story that needs to be told. In my novels I find myself writing about individuals and communities who have lost their sense of connection with their past and with their surroundings.
