My name is Justin M. Lesniewski, and I’m here to witness the farce.

From the moment I started reading, I realized the power of words. Story is humanity’s primary means of authentic connection. When I craft recount a personal experience or craft a fictional world, I do so to show what is real because the human experience is becoming increasingly farcical. My words stand as a testament to the truth as I see it, and I hope others find solace in them in the same way I’ve found solace in the words of others.

I think I figured it out.
