This work originally created between the years of 1991 and 1994 was inspired by my youthful views of the world around me. Please let me explain a few of the items that you may encounter and question through reading “The Chair”.
First off, the Chair itself represents the place I write, my stand in front of the world. The 316 represents the number of times I will fail to finish the book as obviously the book was not finalized until 2016.
The book may seem dark and disturbing to many who will read it. The reader must understand that during this time, I was far from home; learning and inventing the man I would later in life become. The constant talk of pain and sorrow, or hate is a reflection of what we see in the world everyday. Little of the media provides hopeful or inspiration and as a young man in Washington D.C. at the time I was a casualty of the world around me.
Many of the works talk of God and religion, as a Christian I found my solace in faith to help me get through the times of hardship. The book is inspired by my faith as well; God has a certain strong place in my heart. Some may see this work as a blasphemy against the Lord but I believe that every person has their own personal relationship with the Lord and I will let him judge me for the work.
