My First Entry

If you’ve visited Britain’s country side you might be familiar with the Green Man. He is generally portrayed in carvings with leafy vines growing around his body, from his face, mouth, eyes, nose and ears. He is believed to represent life, death, fertility and rebirth. He is a combination of nature and mankind, representing the wildness, power and unity of both. But the story of the Green Man I like most is his being associated with Robin Hood. Everyone knows the story of this Jack-in-the-tree guy who steals from the rich to help the poor.

I have been through a lot and I am no special case. You may have similar stories such as mine but it’s not enough to claim we have the same saga. I have not been to the moon and back but I have enough stories in my sack to share and inspire those who needs it. I want to believe that I am a version of the Green Man. I have him tattooed on my back and thinking I am the Green Man is one of the reasons why I made this blog and used the title you see above. I don’t steal from the rich to feed the poor but I take my experiences to help fill in the bowl of realization other people set centuries back. I am no writer nor is writing my passion. It’s just that I have a lot of ideas in my head and plenty of emotions in my heart that I want to save them somewhere, somehow. I want people to learn from my stories.

This is a short entry since this is just the start of my tale.

When I add people in my blogroll I normally read their first entry to know them more, and that's why I am here.

And like the first meet up, I'd like to shake hands with you! :)

I finally reached the front and knowing why The Green Man. The Green Man with his many identities and carrying the initials 'JP'... keep it up! Like the movie in Sister Act... "I will follow you"
