My Warpath

I am at war with the demons that lurk inside of me.

They are crafty and patient and relentless. They change their tactics and exploit any weakness to achieve their objectives.

Sometimes I give them names to make it easier to disassociate and gather my strength against them. Sometimes I lament their existence and turn their qualities into aspects of my art. Pain, frustration, regret, fear; these can all be used to counterpoint and accentuate joy, forgiveness and peace.

My Warpath is simple and it has two ingredients;

1) Daily exercise

2) Daily writing

From these two pillars all else follows.
