Favorite Quote:
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars, and in the middle, you see the blue center-light pop, and everybody goes ahh..."
—Jack Kerouac, On the Road

some people walk on grass
some people walk on sand
I walk on ice

some people risk it all
some people play it safe
I am thrown around like dice

some people eat esquisitley
some people do not eat at all
I dine only on rice

some people are fierce jaguars some people are lovable bunnies
I crawl around with mice

some people only know warmth
some people flee from cold
I prefer to stay with ice

The author's comments:
I was alking down my street and I noticed how I loved walking on the ice. It was so fun to hear the cracking as I walked. I looked at the pavement and thought about how most people would walk on the pavement instead of risking destroying their shoes with ice. So that is when I came up with this.
