The Inspiration of C.J. HEIGELMANN

When I set my pen to paper and write a story, I am completely consumed with the passion of my vision. This passion is fueled by a deep sense of empathy and the inspiration which accompanies it. Known as one of the greatest aspects of Love, I have been a willing prisoner of it for the majority of my life, and it has given me the ability to understand my environment, and the beings that I share it with. It wasn't until adulthood, that I understood the critical importance and transforming power of Empathy, its necessary role in my life, and the impact it manifests in relation to the evolution and progression of the Human race. The ability to understand and share the feelings of another being, is not just limited to "Human beings," but rather all, "living beings," including our "living planet."
