If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.
-Charles Bukowski

Such personal furnaces are rarely met with a yawn. It’s our intent to publish material here that runs against the grain of the status quo, avoiding just rehashed and regurgitated posts that don’t have serious reflection, engagement and debate.

This is intended to be a forge of ideals, values, beliefs and opinions and in these pages the hammer will fall, anvil shall ring and the smoke of molten heat will hopefully reshape our minds and hearts.

The goal is to build a team of engaging and frequent contributors that will write on various issues and subjects. Submit a post for consideration. If all goes well, we may ask you to join the regular or occasional contributor teams.

We reserve the right to kick anyone off the lawn if they come to just bite or poop. Keep it civil, we are people behind the posts. Debate the ideas, don’t denigrate the person.
