Welcome to The Bent Page, a blog about reading, writing, and the world around us.
My motto is, “It’s a small world but big enough for me.” One way in which our world expands and contracts is through the written word. It may be a blog, a book, a newspaper, or a note left on the fridge. The macro and micro world come into focus from far away or in the palm of your hand.
The written word has been around for several thousand years, and despite great effort, has yet to be perfected. It’s a work in progress, one I happen to enjoy. And that’s why I started this blog, to give an outlet to some of my creative writing endeavors. Hopefully they’ll pique your interest enough to open a dialog, which is one of the best features of a blog. Ideas can be exchanged from around the world through the convenience of cyberspace.
I’ll be creating posts from current and past experiences. Brief meditations on the future will also be included. Combing through my archive of photos will supplement the text, adding another dimension to the words. Don’t hesitate to post your comments. Keep them brief so that they fit the format. Just don’t cut yourself short!
