I created “friends without id” in an attempt to get serious about writing. It’s a word play on my last name and also a description of the universal search for who we are, ultimately. My family name has been a big part of my identity (id), but it has also been an evolving one as someone who has had potentially 3 different names since birth. I may take on another some day . . . who knows? I’ve had one in mind for awhile now.
