Favorite Quote:
“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”

I walk the beaten path
amongst the scarlet leaves,
Twilight had begun descent,
upon the trees of fall.

Suddenly, flames sprung up,
engulfing the foilage,
Autumn fire burned,
Yet smoked refused to rise.

Dusk turned to night,
the sun had set,
the blaze was extinguished,
leaving the wood whole.
