Favorite Quote:
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939, translated from French by Lewis Galantière


The lights are dark
The summer cold
The winter hot
And the wild controlled

Shoes on my hands
A present absentee
Alone in a crowded room
My eyes can't see

Telling secrets
Is an extreme
When you're falling up
Deaf to your own scream

Life is one big oxymoron.

"Do what you will, this world's a fiction and is made up of contradiction." - William Blake
