Let’s start with truth. The truth is that I don’t know exactly what this newsletter is about. Now that we have that out of the way, here’s what I do know.

I create.

Ever since I was a child, I’ve been a creative soul. There’s something about writing a poem or composing a piece of music that is both exciting and satisfying to me.

Throughout the years I’ve created thousands of songs, poems, and musical compositions. I’ve written several books and ebooks. I practice minimalism in art and keep things as simple as possible.

You can learn more about me, my writing, music, and poetry at www.danstevenerickson.com.

So what can I do for you?

Again, the truth: I don’t know exactly what I can do for you. But it’s my hope that I might inspire and teach through my own creativity.

I am both constant and changing. I often don’t know what my next creative project will be until I’m creating it. That’s why it’s hard to say exactly what this website is about or what I might do for you.

But if you subscribe, you can follow my journey and help figure it out with me. Paid subscriptions are appreciated but tag along for free if you want. In the future, I’ll likely be creating both free and paid content, so if you don’t want to miss anything…
