Grand Journey – A Star Wars Tanka

It’s been nearly twenty-five years since I took my first steps into what would become among the most thrilling and influential galaxies I’d ever come across. I haven’t looked back since.

To this day, there hasn’t been a piece of Star Wars media I haven’t enjoyed. Although I can’t help but play favourites to some extent, I don’t regret watching, hearing, reading, playing or otherwise experiencing any of them. Besides sharing their many, varied, and wondrous creative visions, they fuelled my own creativity, as reflected in my writings in and about its universe throughout the years, and they brought me good friends.

In case it wasn’t already abundantly clear: I love Star Wars to death! And now that I’m binging series and movies like nobody’s business in anticipation of one of my all-time favourite characters getting his own show in less than a week, I feel a short ode to one of the most wonderful and inspiring stories in my life is in order. Please enjoy, and may the Force be with you!

Grand Journey
A long time ago
A grand galaxy opened
To a youngling’s mind

Its boundless inspiration
Lasting to this very day


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
