I am a writer, poet, author, and retired Air Force Member. I write in all genres and I just published my first book. I am relocating to Colorado Springs from Miami, FL. I am venturing out to write for all, about all, and the quest is a serious venture since I have been writing my entire literate life.
I wrote this work under the name of Unobtainable while in the Air Force. It is an exploration of relationships, emotions, and through the verse I take the reader there to visualize all that is presented before them. This is not a contrived effort. From the cover displaying my tattoo, to the contents to the back of the book...my efforts, my emotions, and my thoughts.
Unobtainable, is a statement of not being able to be bought, sold, or to be a coward in this life. The reality of walking a courageous life that has placed me on a quest to look at all of humanity. From the explorations of excess in all things to the abasement of our humanity.
Just published book number 2 - Season of Want through Triad Publishing Group

I have done many things. Some horrible, but I have done them incredibly well.
Why I'm Here:
Personal, Professional, To Network, To Make Friends, To Share Ideas
Sensuality, love, passion, emotion, humanity, plenty, want, and life
Peace. The day when we realize that fear is only going to produce violence and we can live life without expecting to be hurt will be a great one. The end of materialism and respect for other individuals in this world. There are no infidels in this world...for intolerance breeds hatred and divisions that cripple us from our full potential.
To touch as many people as possible through my work.
Love is real. Too many people have given up on their dreams and love.
Without love, life is not worth breathing in.
The regrettable life are those who discard their dreams and fail to turn them into reality.
Courage is the act of living. To ask yourself the question what if this were the last day that you walked this planet...what would you do?
Life is about the act of doing, sharing, being more than yourself. Be more than for others and always with an open hand and not a close fist. What is due will come. Do not worry for things, things do not have emotions to hurt. My journey is just beginning. It is time for me to call upon the life I have lived already and now the telling of all begins.
