Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity unto everyone and everything. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of the universe and all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.

Web content faces two insuperable problems: obscurity and neglect.When I use the word obscurity, I mean web content is buried beneath billions of web pages and by neglect, I mean, what if someone actually manages to find your page, they will most probably ignore it or abandon it.So, to conquer these problems, I try to craft my content in a style that search engines can easily find and readers can’t resist. I do this as an earnestly aspiring writer. Outside of this, I’m quite incompetent.
