About the Author

Gary Turcotte

If you die before you share your thoughts, then all you think about is in vain; the same of an imagination, it needs to be exercised and shared. Daydreams, visions and premonitions are soon pushed aside as the precious mind is filled with stress from bills, deadlines and responsibilities. The mind is an inventor and a crafter of stories, and artwork that canvass or type cannot give justice. Unless you are continually reinventing yourself; then you nave no future.
