I love the English language and the possibility for expression that it allows,
but mastery of the language is, in itself, not at all the goal when I compose. The real prize at the heart of why I choose to write is learning
about myself in innumerable ways, about how to express an experience, about different ways to perceive the world we inhabit, and also about how to utilize verbalization and the medium of language. In short, its the process that I love, not the product
unless, of course, I define the product of my writing not as poetry but as knowledge.
