Excerpts from the book:
Poetry and Beauty
"Poetry and beauty are born out of pain.
This is their glory, this is our gain."
The Spirit of Adventure
"May adventure find you and may you find it."
"Travel reveals the unknown.
Travel rejuvenates the heart and soul.
Travel reroutes the routine.
Travel redeems the traveller's dream."
"If being in love is a fool's errand, then I have travelled wide and far.
Then I am its greatest champion, then I am its greatest star.
If being in love is a fool's errand, then I am on its never-ending quest.
Then I am its greatest hero, then I am its greatest jest."
"Writer of words, author of stories. Dreamer of worlds, revealer of glories."
S.Tarr is a writer. He writes very short stories, also known as poems, and longer stories, also known as novels, and sometimes dabbles around in the middle and just writes short stories. During the day he writes code for websites as a web-programmer and at night he composes electronic music under the virtual band The X-Structure, and more recently Soultrek. His first series of poetic books, called Thoughts Discovered, is currently in the making, with the first volume of the series published in October 2013. Thoughts Discovered is a collection of his poetic writings on everyday observations, mystical musings and reflections on the wonder of life. Above all he is an adventurer, explorer and believer, in mind, in spirit and at heart.
I consider myself an adventurer. I travel by bicycle and live on the road. I find that few people understand the experiences that I've had, but Tarr is obviously one of those few.He uses simple, charming verse to put across the feelings that adventurers have in private as they face loneliness, difficulty, danger, and of course the ultimate question of their purpose in life and in risking their life.Ultimately, Tarr's sense of faith in humanity and in the sacred shines through even the passages that reflect on the hardest times. This book is a treasure that truly communicates the joy of adventure.
