Welcome to my site. I’m Steven James Humphreys, your author, with my best friend ‘Bubba’. I feel honored you dropped by to read my ‘stuff’. Everything written within this site is original by ‘yours truly’.

My history: In my younger days, I got my inspiration from reading Edgar Allan Poe’s poem ‘Annabel Lee’ and Henry David Thoreau’s notes on how he spent his time (two years) at ‘Walden Pond’. I so wanted to be like them.

‘If you want to create new things for this world, never listen to anybody. You have to suck your wisdom, all the knowledge from your thumb’ ~ Stanisław Szukalski, Polish painter and sculptor

The ‘Myers Briggs type indicator’ I took in college revealed I was an ‘INFJ’, one of the most introverted personality types. Apparently, from what I understand, the perfect personality justifying writing more and more ‘stuff’.

‘Write as your soul commands and keep doing so no matter what anyone tells you, no matter how many times…’ ~ your author

I enjoyed reading J.D. Salinger’s autobiographical novel ‘Catcher in the Rye’ a couple years ago (which I should have already read in high school.) I found his book in the bottom of a ‘storage box’ my wife’s kids left in our garage.

I don’t remember how I stumbled upon ‘Bukowski’, but he instantly influenced me after reading his poetry and semi-autobiographical novel, ‘Ham on Rye.

‘My site header ‘Open all day all night’ is my tribute to Bukowski. One of his poetry books is ‘Open all night’ ~ yours truly
