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!

she is a melody drawn from the froth of the sea
white caps crashing down upon the thirsting shore
below the beat of wings and the constant cries
of seagulls flapping overhead
she is the world written in chords
birdsong and crickets and the music of the night
the slow mournful voice of mother earth
sleepy and sorrowful
caught up in her own dreams whispering to her children
magma and mountains and wanting to be brilliant
like the stars
she is the universe expressed in flutes
and trumpets and drumrolls and baritones
every star is a note
every constellation a measure
every galaxy an instrument in this everchanging melody
and here she is in the middle of it all
stardust wrapped up in a body
somehow part of creation and yet somehow
separate from it
