another viewpoint...

As well as writing poetry, I also enjoy writing about life and being a father. I write on the subject of depression and my perosnal experiences of living with this mental health condition .  


I find writing as a powerful way of cleansing my mind. I also write as an aid in order to remember these experiences and feelings to both help me, and others.

You  can also see another blog entry I started in 2018 below. I started to write this as a way of making sense of being a father in his 40's, with the hope of attempting to help others.  As I began to write, the piece started to recall a much darker and traumatic time in my life.
