Geneva Diaries – Letters To Roger

I wish to share a slice of my life, a time when I stood hovering over an abyss and embarked upon a decade of intense travels and introspection. I would like to say that it was a space dotted with alien life forms where no Wo-man had been before, but I saw footprints of my fellow travelers all around me, leaving little mementos on the jagged paths along sheer cliffs lining the pathways through Never Neverland. I now return to tell the tale…

Through these journeys I hope to wave my satirical sword and stir a little humor as I paint the macabre and absurd. I also hope to fire and inspire the imaginations of all those who feel they’ve reached a dead end having been bullied, badgered and stripped of their expression by society and circumstances. I write to share the marvels of the earth, all creatures great and small weaving them into my stories so that they remain eternal in our minds and imaginations even as they are being driven to the brink of extinction by our habits and policies.

Finally, I aim to explore through my travel writings and myriad adventures across many realms, legal issues around the fast developing digital world and cyberspace highlighting the fact that Real World laws do not automatically translate into the Cyber Realm and help develop a consensus for the same. And since the WWW is run by teens my writings are moulded to fit my very savvy audience.
