A personal struggle
I begin many stories, poems, and other pieces . . . but I submit few. There are a variety of reasons I delete drafts. Often, I find the effort is not inspired, I lose my enthusiasm, or I determine that I simply lack the time to invest in the endeavor. Still other pieces I delete because they grow too dark.

Searching for answers has always been at the forefront of my mind. As a boy, I played with spaceships, looking to the stars for answers. I played with dinosaurs, asking God why the beginning began. Now, despite the wishes of my well-intentioned wife, I work 72 hours at a research facility in downtown Chicago. Before last Tuesday, the Chicago Facility of Cosmology had stayed out of the media. Our recent findings changed this, however. Now, the media can’t get enough of me nor my colleagues.
