Projects is the name of my website from Dec 1999 through June 2001. After merging its content into Feelings of White, I chose some of the best and most representative articles. Join me on a look back, and a celebration, of this three year period of me as a writer.
I explored a more serious side of my writing on Projects. " Incapable as I am of doing anything without meaning..." I once said, and how true. Part Two carries on with some more autobiographic and serious entries.
A manifesto of sorts, and one that still resonates with me. I've started jokingly tagging these kinds pieces as sermons. It's a form of expression often containing a personal experience, tied to a little nugget of truth I've learned. Or hope to learn.
What makes it a selection is the effective way the mood is set and the feelings are evoked. I knew better than to attempt description of the beautiful girl who sat across me. I'm still coming to terms with how autobiographical my writing has become. But when done correctly, the writing transcends labels of fiction or non. What interested me most was capturing the moment.
This predates any presence of mine on the Internet. Written years and years ago, this brief piece continues to strike me as beautiful and stirring every time I re-read it. It is from the second sentence that Feelings of White takes it's name.
