I’ve dared to look upon the stars in wonder, in awe, and dream. I’ve dared to think for myself and challenge that thinking, to question it, to ponder my own existence. I’ve dared to believe in love, to hope, to have faith. I’ve dared to write poetry only that my […]
I think you’ve got to have an idea of yourself, of who you want to be, of what you want your life to be. When you veer from that course, […]
This quote works on so many levels. Human beings are perfectly imperfect. If you’re still making changes, that means you’re still learning new things.

Greetings and salutations! The end of summer approacheth… We’ve been incredibly busy, doing all kinds of things that have needed to get done, some things that have to get done. You know how it is when it seems like it’s just chores all the time. But it’s one of those […]
