My name is Justin M. Lesniewski, and I’m here to witness the farce.
While the world has been trying to Keep up with the Kardashians (and before that the Osbornes and before that the Kennedys and before that the Rockefellers), I’ve been assembling myself. (Not that I’ve been around since the turn of the 19th Century. It was a joke. YOU GET THE POINT.)
Well, I’ve been doing that and learning about the power of words.
From the moment I started reading, story has been my primary means of human connection. When I craft a fictional world or recount a personal experience, I do so to show myself what is real because the real world is increasingly becoming a farce. 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.
