The Hunger

It’s not a bad thing if you are not (yet) filled with this type of desire, but it is a wonderful joy that comes with having something that fills you up so fully with satisfaction. Even small bits of stolen time to follow the lead of your practice (physical or spiritual, professional or amateur) are worthy of gratitude.

The Hunger

I often have a hunger that engulfs me at the most inopportune times. It fills me with a need far greater than mere desire and can only be sated when I stop doing all else to focus exclusively on putting to words feelings and ideas gushing from the depths of my spirit, and offer them with love to the world.

I am an adjunct assistant professor of English at Pace University in NY, adjunct faculty in English at Raritan Valley Community College in NJ, an online member of the adjunct faculty at SNHU College of Online and Continuing Education, as well as a freelance editor and writer. For many years, I've taught, guided, and tutored many individuals from those as young as kindergarten age to Grad-school students. I've worked on fiction, nonfiction, and memoirs. What has given me the greatest pleasure, is when I have students get together in a group, and create a story together. I offer the theme (e.g., Create a version of Red Riding Hood) and they run with it. I hope to offer this community collaboration to many more people. The goal is to prove that you don't have to be alone to write, you don't have to offer yourself up alone to the group, you can collaborate and offer the world (yes, the world is the community) a chance to create a narrative together. The results have been amazing.
