Hello! Welcome to my blogsite, OwnShadow.

I am a writer who communicates more easily through the written word than through the spoken word.





Readers should note that in my poetry I will sometimes write in the first person even when I myself am not the ‘I’ in question. This is, of course, a common practice in poetry just as it is in fiction, but in the blogosphere it can be misinterpreted by some as dishonesty. For many, blogs are just a vehicle of self-expression. However, I also use my posts to explore ideas and feelings, not necessarily my own. But it spoils the effect if I have to explain who is who in the comments. Readers should bear this in mind.

I hope you will enjoy reading my work.
