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.”

Shh, my rose
they will damn us
if they hear our secret
but I know you whispered soft
words that brought a smile
to my lips
and as I dream
in my love-fevered heart
as I wish on a star
in this vast velvet sky we share
Yes, my rose
I love you too.
