Book Description

Publication Date: April 27, 2013

I wrote Epiphany in A Cluttered Room because writing is life for me. I live to write and I write to live. It’s the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning and it’s the last thing I do at night. If I stopped writing I would probably stop living. It is who I am, a writer.

Writing gives me the opportunity to share my experience and views, my creativity and.my passions with other people around the world, and that is what I do in this memoir. It is absolutely amazing to me, even nowadays, that what I write from my cluttered office in my home in Chile gets read by some person in China or Turkey or England or anyplace on the globe. Maybe they are trying to relax or find out something about a topic or essay that I’ve written. Who knows?

As you can see, writing is powerful. It’s modern day magic, and I’m the magician. Beyond the marvels of magic, I feel compelled to share my stories with other people in hopes that my words may provide the inspiration that they have been looking for, to create hope and support for anyone who needs it.

Some while back, I realized I was born a teacher. That is to say, my God-given ability, the gift of my birth, was teaching. I did nothing, I simply am and always have been, a teacher, that’s what I was born to be… http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C8AUF32

Teaching and learning is the common thread that runs throughout my life. In everything I have ever done, I have first learned something, then learned it even better, deeper, more thoroughly, by teaching what I had learned, to others.

I began my teaching career when I was four years old. That was the age at which I learned to read, to write, and to do math. By the time I entered first grade, I was many years ahead of my classmates in terms of linguistic development. Therefore, it was only natural for my teachers to encourage me to help classmates. And so it all began.

This book, “therefore, is a memoir of sorts. It takes me back to the days of my earliest teachers, to a very elementary time and place in my life.

From the clutter of a room will grow the central understanding about what makes me the person I am today. Enjoy the journey back with me, to sources of knowledge, marvelous and majestic, regardless of where they may be found. Enjoy the journey, as the memory is a treasured one…
