Favorite Quote:
Cogito ergo sum

These words rearranged 

In a thousand different ways

Are the tiles

On my scrabble rack;

I try to reach to your

Very soul

As I have tried

A thousand times before;

Yet as the seconds become


As the years fade

Into centuries,

Until the footprints we once left

On the sands of time

Are washed away by the waves

Of a high tide,

These words are all we have

The author's comments:

We use these same words every day in every way possible. We create and destroy, hurt and love and heal and wound with these same words rearranged millions of times. 

But as the time fades these words are all we have.
