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 back to the United States, 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 goodness over badness, kindness over selfishness, love over hate. That we will look within ourselves to become more self-aware and outside of ourselves to see the beauty in others . . .
We find what we seek.
I hope you hope the same things, too.
