Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela


White crystals settle on barren trees
Blanketing the world in a frozen shroud.
Fall is past, Death's favorite season.
The fallen leaves become part of the ground.
Everything seems new when covered in white.
Winter is here, early in coming.
No more blue skies,
No shining sun.
The cold has settled
Embracing me in its hostility.
Comforting arms made of frost,
Possessing what warmth could never give.
