All of life, the good, the bad, and the ugly, contribute to the stories of our lives. I tell a couple of stories from my checkered life and how I came to love and embrace what I once loathed over at my friend Dan’s site.

Dan Erickson has published two books that have been my pleasure to read and my heart beats a little faster thinking about them. Dan has a unique style that is all his own, he spins raw words that pack a punch with the beauty of the warrior poet that he is. I hope you can take the time to join me over at Dan’s place today as he kicks off a new weekly series on the benefits of writing.

Check out Dan regularly and pick up his books, you won’t be disappointed. Click for transportation over to Dan’s place.the awakening
