    Okay, they are all in the same boat as you. You got this. You aren’t in “their territory” this is neutral ground. They’re just coming to college for the first time too. What doesn’t it matter if you are still in high school and they’re freshmen in college? They’re only a year or so old...

    When we are born, we are cradled by the pines. The crickets whisper good night and the frogs chirp our bedtime stories. In the distance the coyotes sing us a lullaby. The dogs guard us all night. The moon above and the stars around stroke our brows through our windows. The sound of cars is nowher...

    Fear. What is it exactly? We’ve all felt it: the wave of adrenaline, the shaking limbs, the pounding hearts, the increased breathing, the slowing of time. But…why do we feel it? Why does it overcome our whole soul? I’ve asked myself this question many of times. I have no answer. Do you? ...

    When I was little I always was fascinated by those leaf tornadoes. They spun the loose dirt and leaves in the air and across the ground for a few brief seconds before they dissolved into dust. I loved to watch them as they swirled, seeming to dance. I used to think they were portals, gifts of es...

    Smooth out hair. Carefully place sunglasses on head. Straighten up the belt. Check to see if there are any wrinkles on clothes. See if necklace is crooked. Make sure boots are on right. Rub at makeup. Observe. I see the face staring back at me. I see the right nostril slightly larger th...

    A is for Apple. It was the first present you ever gave me. You gave it to me the first time you met me. My family had just moved from New York state to Virginia, into the farm next to yours. You were sitting up in an apple tree eating the apples. When you saw me you tossed me a bright red o...

    When I’m fifteen, I’ll reach for my pencil and capture the world with its tip. When I’m sixteen, I’ll drive around the globe and chase my dreams across the sky. When I’m seventeen, I’ll date a prince and then kiss him on my balcony. When I’m eighteen, I’ll release my childhood wit...

    A box of secrets lies buried on an old abandoned island that’s long forgotten. It is locked away with a heavy chain and the insides are unknown, for the pirates who put it there were lost at sea. A box of secrets lies hidden in the pyramids. The sands of the past have kept it over the centuries...

    It all started eleven years ago. I was only eight when the Sickness came. No one is sure how it started, only that it killed everyone it came in contact with. No one was spared: not the rich or the poor, not the famous or the commoner, not the politician or the mail man. Death became so vast tha...

    I wish I knew everything Why true love turns out to be false How brother and sister can hate each other Why peace isn’t a real term How people can turn away from the helpless Why freedom isn’t free How they take advantage of the giving Why we hate How we hate And then sometimes I wish...

    I just can’t get her off of my mind. Just who is she? I pace back and forth in irritation across my room. It has been three days since the ball and still she hasn’t stepped forward. Yes, countless of actresses had come forth with their best dress and with plastered smiles, but I could tel...

I know everything, nothing, and am still trying to figure things out. I am a writer, I shall keep legends alive, memories forever, and will always hav...

    You know, I get the blame for everything. You humans are so unappreciative. I mean, come on, I have been around for ages helping you be happier and you always point your fingers at me when you let stupid things such as pride or inconvenience get in the way of your joy. Make fun of my bow and arr...
