The man in my head that struggles to break free. Everything is perfect as I view silently ahead to see, tapped into the infinite moment of a human experience… How did I get here?

To Mend a Broken Heart

Author: Adam Abramowitz

They showed … Continue reading Powerlessness and the Illusion of Free-Will (Part 1)

Detox, Recovery, and the Pursuit of a Dream

Written by: Adam Abramowitz

The following is an outlet to describe stories of struggle and hope. To present ideas of purpose and success. Spirituality and self-awareness. I offer, A Glance Inside the Minds Eye…

The direction of my life is completely out of my control. I cannot prevent my gut, or my intention. My own desire to write the thing I wish I could read. I’ve found myself contemplating ideas of purpose. Ideas of success. Analyzing and interpreting what these words mean to me. What I want and how to achieve it.

The thing is, I have a dream. I want to be an author. Continue reading “Detox, Recovery, and the Pursuit of a Dream”
