One day, I hope to become a writer. To that end I have read many books in diverse styles and genres as a means to learn the art. It is now time to go beyond book learning and into the practice of forming coherent lines. 

Umbral del Tiempo means “Time’s Threshold” and is from a favorite poem of mine written by Alfonso Cortes. The poem is about how through poetry we can “see God on Time’s Threshold”. This mystic property to perceive the transcendental is, in my opinion, found in all types of art… but I recognize it particularly in the written word. 

This blog will necessarily focus on my thoughts on reading and writing… though to be honest, I may diverge to other topics as my capricious mind sees fit.
