Favorite Quote:
Luke 12:23-31 life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. consider the ravens: they do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet god feeds them. and how much more valuable you are than birds!...(theres more)

Sleepers and nothing-doers beware
because i call forth the thinkers.
I call forth the artists who paint the words we can't say, the thoughts we can't express.
I call forth the sculptor who takes dead stone and finds life within.
I call forth the musician who pulls out his soul and offers it up in the tweet of a bird.
I call forth the dancers who transform heart into movement.
I call forth the inventor who melds lonely pieces into a community.
I call forth the builders, the healers, the calculators, the caretakers.
I call forth the poets who use words to divine the meaning of it all.
I call forth the thinkers.
May we better the world.

The author's comments:
As i sat in class today and found my head full of nothing i realized that we don't think. we ask for everything to be handed to us. we even believe we are thinking for ourselves because we've been told to.
