Welcome to my journal. As you can clearly discern from the locked cover of this book, I have chosen a stance of friends only. It may seem a little unfriendly at first, but my reasoning for this stems from a firm belief that all the pieces of me contained herein belong only to those people who are a part of my life. Don't get me wrong, I love strangers. They always have so many stories. Everyone knows a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet. This is why I will befriend anyone who comes along with a tickle of curiousity. Prove me wrong and I'll remove you, no questions asked. That is only fair. I think of this place as my home on the internet, styled and made to suit me, so as such please treat it with respect and I will duly return the favor.




I prefer to be called Dez. I'm twenty-something, though some days I feel much older than that. Sometimes experience can be heavier than years. I'm currently engrossed with the idea of travelling. I have always had a deep sense of wanderlust, as it runs in my blood. I could keep walking forever. I was blessed with my father's eyes and my mother's unfailing sense of loyalty. Often it has been exactly those qualities which have gotten me into, and out of, trouble. I was a dream created by two people in love, given a voice and a sense of lingering passion. I have a temper that can only be described by my Irish heritage. I love to build, to watch things grow from nothing. I am a spiritual explorer. I ask far too many questions than I should. Karma has finally delivered me to my other half and allowed me a measure of peace in being whole. I will never doubt just how much I would go through all over again in order to find him. I am Cancerian; crafted by the stars, I am charged by my emotions, left in the dark by logic and a fierce fighter. I am angered by injustice. I'm am saddened by apathy. Give me a challenge and see how bright I can truly shine. I am captivated by fantasy, ancient history and Grecian legends. I was born with a green thumb; I can make anything grow, or come back from the brink of being gone. I have a near compulsive need for cleanliness. I clean everything. I want to be able to heal others. One day I will visit every corner of this Earth. I have learned to never regret.
