I write as personal therapy. Writing has always brought me a focused peace and served as an expressive outlet to communicate myself in ways the spoken word often fails me. A few of you have been with me and my writings for years. Some 2 years ago I took down my online site. I was headed into the worst storm of my life. The past few years have been my personal hell. Oh I still wrote, but I resisted the temptation to click the publish button, instead saving each writing in a personal file. I decided to take my daily writings off-line until the time I felt it was appropriate to publish once again. Though the storm still rages,
What will follow will be a somewhat regular personal diary posted here at Nova Initia (Latin for New Beginnings). Facebook has allowed me to stay connected with those I love (and given my quirky sense of humor an outlet). That must continue. But here at Nova Initia my heart is to communicate authenticity….to write in such a way that my heart longs for – to be real…to be honest to whom God created me to be…unencumbered by the layers upon layers of religious, man-made idioms, expectations and CRAP.
My name is Roy and I am tired of being a Christian.
