Favorite Quote:
This is the way the world ends,
This is the way the world ends,
This is the way the world ends,
Not with a bang but a whimper.
-"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot


Midnight mockingbird,
Come sing to me tonight,
And let your secret melodies carress my ear,
Of sounds I'll never tell.

Fear not, little bird,
Don't dwell upon past flights and falls,
Nor forward to blinding yellows and somber blacks.

But come, sweet bird, pearch upon my finger,
And rest your fluttered wings.

I wrote this for my friend Jarod, whom I care about dearly and hope he finds his way through life.
