To be creative is a gift, but with it also comes responsibility, to hone your talent, to share it, to excel and to evolve.
I do not take my talents for granted, and I am enormously grateful for the stories and poems that come to me. As I branch out into owning and marketing my own intellectual property, rather than hand it off to publishers, I feel a sense of freedom and possibility that I have not felt in a long time.
I am launching my own Journal, Interviewing the Caribbean. I am establishing my own institutions, no longer hiding behind or trying to fit into other’s agenda, but plowing my own road, and when I’ve gotten that done I will build my own monument.
