Kernels of ideas dance everywhere from the mist, to whispered conversations and to the spaces between moments of time and dreams and sleep. I see these glimpses of wonder. The puzzlement of a character, the juxtaposition of words to convey a feeling and know that when I'm writing I feel a kind of magic. One tangible and intangible all at the same time.
