Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

today mother earth comes to our door,
begging for scraps of a future, pennies
to buy herself a gas mask and air conditioning.
“i can’t breathe” she tells us.
“won’t you help me?”
we scoff, tell her that this is no place for her,
tell her to return to her children,
her forests, her mountains, her white sandy beaches

and leave us alone. as we shut the door,
she shakes her head and smiles sadly.
“i would, but there are none left.”
