How “chimerical” have we allowed our world to become? Have our ego-driven obsessions shut out the magical such-ness of Being? Chimera takes its name from Greek mythology and, across five stories representing different points of modern crises, spins it into a metaphor for what our human experience is becoming.
Written from the perspective of various “identities” comprising the author’s life (Southerner, American expatriate, hip-hop head, millennial, spiritual thinker), Chimera is a compact, eclectic volume of stories that reflects our global crossroads in a style all its own.

“I have seen the Buddha carved in wood, imprisoned in silk, paralyzed in ceramics and splashed on canvas in watercolor; I have seen him sitting cross-legged in jade and emerald, in bronze spray paint surrounded by open-jawed serpents. But here his essence is as elusive as his image is ubiquitous…”  ~A Search In Siam
