Welcome!

Hi there,

My name is Jaime Alejandro (cruzfolio.com). I write, record, and collaborate. Welcome!

The coalition is a gathering place for the literary and performing arts. This is my creative home. I publish coalitionworks online journal, produce audio works and collaborative projects that grapple with the absurd nature of life and the cosmos. I love short-form work that carries in its glorious brevity the conflict between joyful human purpose and total futility.

Go make a dent. Much love,

. . . It is a challenge to accept the human condition as it is, in all its mystery and absurdity, and to bear it with dignity, nobly, responsibly; precisely because there are no easy solutions to the mysteries of existence, because ultimately man is alone in a meaningless world. The shedding of easy solutions, of comforting illusions, may be painful, but it leaves behind it a sense of freedom and relief. And that is why, in the last resort, the Theatre of the Absurd does not provoke tears of despair but the laughter of liberation.
