About

This blog is simply a collection of my thoughts and experiences shared through writing. I’ll include some poems, I hope, if the poem gods have their way with me. Why 85skins as the blog title? Well, the numbers 8 and 5 keep recurring in my life. I think it is more than coincidence and I guess I am paying homage to the universe for helping me to see and appreciate these recurring numbers. I picked the idea of skins because I know from wearing my own yellow skin that I am more than my skin color. I am more than all the labels that I am identified with. I hope to try to see things with all the “skins” that life has covered me with, all 85 or so of them…
