I had an epiphany this morning. A big one, actually. One that cannot be ignored or forgotten or denied.

I. Am. Alone.

In this life. On this planet.

And I’m not complaining.

It’s ironic, really, for this to have started that way in my head when the truth is that I like being alone once in a while.Well… Of course not all day every day, but I don’t mind it so much..

Sometimes it’s nice.

I gained a healthy love for reading at an early age and have always loved the way it feels to hold a book in my hands. 

I think I was eleven when my dad gave me a copy of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. I’d long been reading chapter books, but they were more along the lines of The Sweet Valley Twins and The Babysitter’s Club. I was hooked before the end of the first chapter and have since read it over many times. 

From there the list goes on and on. I still read every single day. My dad says reading makes you smarter, and he’s right ’cause I’m still learning.


The most precious thing in the world is youth. Too bad it’s wasted on children.                       Irvin S Cobb – 1931

I never really understood what that meant until I started getting old. I didn’t think of ‘old’ as what I’d really truly be at 38, but geez am I tired..
