“New beginnings, true beginnings. The path takes a winding turn, live and learn has become retained and changed. I am within my self-renamed. The title carries a flame that burns away all that which had hands to force me to remain the same. The stagnant grip is loosed. The noose is cut through and my neck is freed, allowing me escape with my life intact and breathe. The current me has gained eyes to see.” – Ricardo Antonio Hanley Jr.
