Greetings, dear reader.

Isn’t it a wondrous thing how by reading these words you are inadvertently wandering into my world? Welcome.

And thank you.

I hereby would like to invite you to join me on a journey. This would be the journey I made over this last year; one of mixed feelings, a journey to the summit and beyond. I hope that you’ll allow me to take you with me.

Whatever the case: I am all of these people, and hereby would like to apologize for all of them in advance. When I use violent words I merely hope that through this paper and ink – or through this screen - you will be able to feel what I feel, taste the blood that I taste.

It might even become – if only ever so slightly – more clear to you what is real and what is not, in this world. Welcome to the world of Face Value.
