Message from Writer

"We're good at drawing lines through the spaces between stars like we're pattern-finders, and we'll find patterns and we like really put our hearts and minds into it and even if we don't mean to.
So I believe in a universe that doesn't care and people who do."

All I Ask Is That You Care

Two Trees

FREE WRITING

Two trees were planted
One before the other
So when the second seed was buried
The first had already sprouted


It didn't dawn on me how much 
things would change
until we were already on our way

The first tree, being older
Was larger than the second one
