Since antiquity, people have been drawn to the idea of taking something common and creating something extraordinary. Whether it was a recipe for eternal youth, the transformation of lead into gold, or understanding the divine, people have looked at the things around them and thought there must be a way to create something more.

So I have fallen into a long tradition. As a storyteller, I take words and create something more. I forge worlds and give them emotion and life. I weave people out of letters and spaces. I shape a blank sheet of paper into a soul.

Like so many before me, I too often find myself seeking an elusive end. But the rare moments when all the words are just right are more valuable than gold, more immortal than eternal youth, and as close to understanding the divine as any of us can hope to reach.

I invite everyone to join me on this exploration of The Alchemy of Words.
