The book is a fun book for children and adults alike to enjoy. "Playgound Beyond" was inspired by working in a museum as a security guard. I got a chance to see all the museum exhibits and fell in Love with all of the art coming through the door. It started in 2000 when the Salvador Dali exhibit was at the Hirshhorn museum and sculpture garden. I read how surrealist artist detach their minds from creating art by using their minds from creating art by using their subconscious minds. I thought to use that technique in writing my poetry. The exhibition HC Westermann that can to the Hirshhorn museum in 2002 started to influence my way of thinking as well. I love how the existential movement was so in tune with the world around them and thought how I can use that technique in writing my poetry. But the one that got me actively writing in a surreal existential matter was a French surrealist painter by the name of Yves Tanguy. He taught me to write as though you were writing beneath your direct thoughts without effort being applied into thinking. It helped me to relax more so my thoughts come easy to write. I wrote my first thirteen poems before I had a writers block. It took me three years before I picked it back up and finished my book in 2005. Whimsical thinking also helped in my writing by being more relaxed, so I introduced that in my writing. So have some fun and enjoy my work.
