Make America Great Again

PROMPT: Environmental Writing Competition 2018

    If a tree falls and no one is around to hear it, does it still fall or do we just not care?

    We, the American population, are opportunity takers. Or simply, we are takers. Constantly in competition, we take from each other, from ourselves, and most importantly from the very land, sea, and sky surrounding us. As we take from the environment excessively, is the problem that we aren’t realizing the dramatic effects that take place or perhaps, on a...

Fairy Lights

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2015

This is what life is about.

It's about spending time on a home-built porch at 9:29pm when it feels like 11. Looking up and seeing a sky of ink with white splotches and on the left side of your vision, there is the moon. The great sorceress that moves the ocean with the tip of her finger; the under appreciated source of life; your follower on long road trips when you were a child, watching over you, and tonight-- she looks like a toenail. Even...
