About Vibrant Word
Most of the author content on this site was originally published between 2001 and 2005 on another website called Vibrant Universe. That site had over 500 pages and was quite popular at the time. At the end of 2005, Vibrant Universe was revised to be completely on the subject of ‘the universe’.
Some of the author pages were re-published (with updates) under the Vibrant Word website in January 2011.
Known to some as the “Extra Words Police” (EWP), I edit superfluous text and focus on the core message. I simplify complex verbiage or legalese so anyone can read and understand it.
My writing can be serious, philosophical, humorous, and sometimes all of these rolled into one. I created the Canadian Model of Direct Communication (CMoDC), Quirky Idea, Macrame Owl and many other websites, blogs, and Facebook pages (summarized at zalezsak.com).
I’ve had a passion for writing since about the age of nine. In my teens, I wrote countless poems. Since 1995, I’ve been writing for diverse corporate and public audiences. In 2013, I wrote and self-published the book, “We Are One Blood: Honouring the Body’s Right to Heal Itself”. It’s about my personal journey leading to a near-death experience and beyond.
I am a literacy mentor for people who have English as their second language.
I am an artist with a passion for painting and the creative arts (Creative Courage),
