Illume at Eight: Notions on life in-between.  Post-colonialism optional.

I am liminal, inter-cultural, and love cities. I am interested in social justice and international development. I write poetry and short stories. I particularly enjoy stories and narratives that related to life between boundaries, on the fringes, and at the edges and margins of our world.

The title “Illume at Eight” is derived from a Fleetwood Mac song called “Illume,” written by Stevie Nicks:

Illume says the candle that I burn
A reflection in the window
All the way to Point Dune
Illume-like it dances
I am a cliff dweller
From the old school
