I started this blog because I love to write. I started it to share my experiences in Asia—and how they changed me. Since moving home, I have also turned to current events and poetry.
Writing, like everything, is an evolution.
I chose the name Shift because I have come to see that life, for everyone, is a series of phases. Within each phase, any number of things can happen. Some of these things are up to us; others, belong to “fate.” But no matter their cause, to each event, and to each phase, we must adjust. We must grow and change. We must adapt—for better, or for worse.
We have a choice.
My hope is that we will choose to be better. That we will choose good over bad, kindness over selfishness, love over hate. That we will look outside of and see others as we see ourselves . . .
That we will become greater than what we are.
I hope you hope the same thing, too.
