Kind Reader,

While it may appear this page is nearly blank, I assure you that there is a great deal of content, it's simply hidden very carefully out of view.


For fear. Fear of judgment, fear of commitment, fear of of opening up and letting people really see into my mind.

While you, reader, are certainly of sound mind and surely an accepting individual, there are so many out there who would as soon bring me down as read these words that I can be none too careful.

And perhaps it's not even strangers I fear. Perhaps it's those who I gather around me like a quilt, whom I shower with love and affection. Perhaps it's them I have to the most to fear from. For if they knew my mind, who knows the calamity that could ensue? Who knows how much change I'd have to make, how much more I'd have to open up, how much liability I'd have to accept?

For showing my mind is a dangerous task, and I've been hurt by it before.

From that experience I gleaned a lesson, and from that experience I am still recovering.

Dear Reader.
Gentle Reader.

I hope you are bolder than I.

Go out and yell to the world, share your mind with them.

No matter how dull your book, no matter how controversial, no matter how trivial, I hope you know that it is yours to write, and you take the time to share it with the world.

For tonight I make another entry in my blank book and sigh, knowing my eyes are the only ones that will ever lay upon it.
