About

May 17, 2010 —It's six in the morning. I have decided to finally write an about page. I know I've been putting off this quite daunting task for awhile...

And it's daunting because it requires the writer, that would be me, to be stripped off of a few layers and lay bare my vulnerabilities to anyone who happen to read this blog. Well, it's not like we all don't live "public" lives... but, just the thought of being exposed to public scrutiny and or perhaps even admiration is just beyond me.

This blog was born of a personal quest. A pursuit of authenticity, of personal change. A quest to challenge the status quo of my choice, living outside my comfort zone. It is in a way, a means to find and connect with fellow wanderers who, are equally enjoying the scenery along the way, as much as the experience itself.

I muse about life. That is, through cups of steaming coffee each day, thus, the title of this blog. It's about my life, if that even interests anyone in this planet besides my mother. To take head-on life's challenges, grapple with issues I'm passionate about —the necessity of growth— which, is a feeling of freedom and risk in equal measure. It's difficult. But, writing liberates the soul. My soul.

As yet, I may not change change the world (heck, even my own world) a bit this way, but then, perhaps I can hear you say, "What, you too? I thought I was the only one.." and that would be more than enough for me...
