Favorite Quote:
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they go right. You believe lies so you eventually trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart, so that better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe

A murmur of water fills my ears,
I smell the spring water that’s so pure,
Coo’s and Oo ah ah’s echo through the trees;
Every step I take my feet squish and squash,
My toes slowly sinking down into the warm mud;
The golden rays beam down to the earth,
Illuminating each and every leaf to a light green,
The dew glistens in the sunlight filling my eyes with sparkle;
Growls and Snarls behind me raise goose bumps,
A brush of soft fur touches my leg,
I see a glance orange and black;
No need to be afraid he’s friendly.
I breathe through my mouth,
I can taste everything;
The water, the air, and the stinky mud;
All my senses are overtaken with the jungle;
Listening, smelling, seeing, feeling, and tasting everything.
Momentarily the noise becomes mute;
All that was once bustling is now silent.
I hear a whisper but I’m all alone?
It’s God, and he’s met me in my heaven.
