Start Here

Welcome To FilingThePapers

Imagine starting a new life every three or four years. Creating new concepts, friends, and ideas; only to wash them away with memories mere months from their creation.

FilingThePapers was originally designed as a construct of explaining life when life goes wrong. Starting from the simplistic horrors of a divorce, to recognizing God’s grace, to accepting at times that you will fail at your adventures. Since 2011 it has taken on nearly a symbolic interpretation of my own struggles; trying to survive in a culture that seems so foreign.

These chapters, books, and random thoughts I want to share with you. Starting in a lowly basement apartment in the Ozark region of the United States in the hot, lonely month of July, FilingThePapers has truly found a breath of its own.

P.S. If I may suggest following a path in order to get…accompanied with this site; try this:

Star Here–>’speak’–>’the cast”–>’X’–>’Recovery’–> ‘O’–>’XO’–>’XXXI’–>Home [repeat as desired…]

  1. Shawn, I appreciate your blog. If I were in your same situation, I would very much like an outlet such as this. I am writing this note because I came across you Photographic Therapy of Northwest Missouri Flooding images. They are very strong. I have some questions about them … thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

    • Greetings,
      When I saw the end of your address being I got rather nervous. I swear I did not encourage the flooding! All joking aside all of these are my own work and I am more then happy to answer any questions that you may have! Currently you can contact me via e-mail at [very professional, I know…].
