Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


Have you heard of the girl
who is only alive
on Sundays?
She slithers between the hymnal pages
leaving a trail of yellowed age.
She leaps from pew to pew
wearing down the maggot wood
and most of all
she nestles deep inside the preacher’s ear
humming along to the eternal lullaby
ringing in his head.
