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.”

What are words?
Jest letters and sound,
They mean nothing,
empty promises,
hollowed vows,
Only our voices,
our emotions,
our trust,
make the words ours,
makes them meaningful,
Only our voices,
mark our words,
After all,
we share words,
and without a voice,
anyone, anywhere,
can claim
all these words
for their own,
and without a voice,
who is there
that believes
in the written word?
