Welcome to the literature section of Realizen. This
is a collection of essays, short stories, poems, and
other works of literature I've written over the last
All this literature got onto this website from years
of writing. First came short stories from way back in
1995, then a few poems, and during college, many essays
and research papers. I have my graduate
school work on a different section of my website.
All of life is my inspiration for writing; you can
see this from the diversity of subjects that can be
found here. Something will happen to me over the
course of a day, and I'll write about it because I don't
want to forget about it. That's something that
writing does for a person. It keeps one's thoughts
Writing is letting someone know how you feel, and keeping
that feeling frozen in time. I've written a lot
of things because I wanted to remember what I once thought
about this world we share, and to share my thoughts
with you. Writing is very much like photography.
A picture may contain a thousand words, but well, there's
the thousand-word part to think about. A picture
stops time, freezes it still, and preserves an event
from the ravages of lost memories. A story does
the same, just in a different way.
Spoken words can be forgotten so easily, but when I
write to tell someone how much I appreciate him or her,
that can never be forgotten. That will never be
lost. In that way, writing brings us together.
