Favorite Quote:
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. They are but trifles, to be sure, but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

Alone in the jungle I walk to you,
Clutching the dim light of the falling sun,
I follow the pull, I begin to run,
The trees reach for me as I stumble through,
The night is black, and be darker I knew,
My tangled hopes, though deep, quickly undone,
My feet surrendered to the dusk, each one,
My shoulders bent low, never to pursue.
Though when I melted, your words rang my heart,
My fingers tingled, my feet were revived,
No longer is the pursuit that in black,
But in a wind of luminescent art,
Through the thick, wild jungle trees I survived,
I walk to you, strength anew, back on track.
