WELCOME TO POINTS OF CONNECTION

Points of Connection is an online collection of thoughts, poems, and ideas that I have had over the years.

Understanding Insecurities

August 18th, 2018|

I'm going to start off with a bold statement. Insecurities cause most, if not all, of the world's suffering.

Deconstructing Definitions

We are never so much more human as in the times we discover that we are not that different, you and I. Somewhere in the palette of color we paint our life our minds are like brothers and sisters, muddled merely by the medium we choose to express ourselves.
