"I am compelled to mention my credentials because writers and artists are largely a self appointed lot. I try to accomplish rather than achieve, but credibility is elusive. There are surely brilliant creations that will remain in obscurity, simply because the artists were unable to draw attention to them. Still, I believe it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all." A. Van Kraft
