When we hear a story, we embark upon a journey. This explains our fascination with storytellers. They weave the tales that speak of our lives. We lose ourselves, and yet find ourselves in their words. The tales they tell mimic our own explorations.

Journeys Of A Fragmented Life is the story of personal adventure. It leads the reader on a winding, often surprising path through both darkness and light. It is a story of love-for others, but ultimately, for ourselves. It is an attempt to assemble the fragments of life’s journey.
