Politics have become a game of sport, where one side constantly tries to defeat the other, in a competition that can't truly be won unless everyone wins. As fans, rooting for the other side's failure, is like hoping the other team's stadium implodes while you're sitting in it.
One of the best things about having faith is that it gives you a place to store the answers when you don't have them
Maybe the idea isn't to be better than someone else was the day before, but to be better than you were the day before.
Don’t forget… in the course of being an adult, being responsible, and carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, to look at life through the eyes of a child, appreciate the silly, and be a little goofy at times.
The more your own opinion becomes important to how you feel about your own actions, the less other people's opinions will matter. And it will give you freedom.
I hope, in the future, we look back at those who hated so much, and know we used them as markers to measure who we didn't want to be
May the coming year bring you all of what you need, most of what you want, and just enough struggle to appreciate it all.
Tis better to have felt the depth of intensity and be left bereft, then to have never felt at all. I will take the deep cutting pain of loss, over the black chasm of nothing, every time.

This is where I'm supposed to write something about myself. I still have some hair left. I am still undecided which I like better, photography or painting. My four major food group are seafood, melted cheese, pasta, and Advil. I love the hunt of a finished piece of art. All quotes, essays, stories, and any other written piece on this website, are original and written by yours truly, unless otherwise noted.
