Thank you for showing interest in my writings.
I started writing when I was a kid but never really tried to make any sense out of what I wrote. I tended to just scribble little sentences down, read it, then throw it away. After a very traumatic event in my life, things became more complex and harder to understand. Years of therapy taught me to keep a journal on my nightstand and write down anything that came to mind including all that I could remember from dreams.
After many sleepless nights and trying to force myself to remember anything from the dream I was able to sleep for, I was finally able to start writing a sentence here, a paragraph there, and so on. Eventually I was able to read what I scribbled down in my half slumber and begin to recall the dreams or nightmares with complete clarity.
Sometimes now I find that doing this has been a blessing for me to learn so much from what has been locked away in my mind as true events being recalled, or by imagining things that I loved and untold stories being unfolded before my eyes. Other times however, the nightmares would be the curse on the other side of the coin. Living out such tragedy in my mind would have me waking up in night sweats from the sheer brutal reality my mind was pulled into. Some were from past events, others not yet seen the light of our real world experiences.
What I have come to realize by writing is that doing so left me with a material instrument for understanding what has happened in my life and sometimes gave me an insight to things that have yet to occur therefore preparing me for something that may or may not happen. Everything in life is linked to a seperate yet equal event whether it is two equal good events or a good event paralleled with a bad one equally as influential if that makes any sense.
Our dream state minds are but a canvas of illusion, painted by the whimsical strokes of memories gone by, hopes of fantasies yet to come, and fears deeply embedded within our fragile glass walled souls. Only when we break free from the confines of our own self doubt can we truly embrace the stories that define all that we are, all that we were, and all that we are destined to become. ~Jason Palm
I hope that my works can help introduce some insight not only into my life and ways of seeing life, but maybe spark something in yourself that will help guide you into finding answers to questions locked away in your mind as well.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I wish you all the best in your journey through this blessing of life we have been gifted.
