Favorite Quote:
"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." -- Sherlock Holmes


You have to be crazy
If you love to read:
To trek through the highest mountains,
Swim through the deepest ocean,
Or dance through the hottest coals.

You have to be crazy
If you are willing to jump out a plane
Soar with angel wings
And land in a jungle with things you never imagined staring at you.

You have to be crazy
If you want to venture into the depths of war
Your only weapon a pen
And fight off ogres and Nazis.

You have to be crazy
If you want to look through the eyes of a felon
A werewolf
Or your closest friend.

You have to be crazy
If you want to charm snakes
Touch the stars
And have your heart race.

You have to be crazy
To close the pages of a leather-bound book
Craving for more adventure
And walk away a different person.

You have to be crazy.

So we had to do this really dumb thing during language arts. Amazingly, my teacher didn't think mine sucked. You've probably seen this before, blast from the past... uploaded just for kicks.
