“When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how we feel, how we lose and stand up, and go on from darkness into darkness. I’m trying for that. But I am also trying for the language. I am trying to see how it can really sound. I really love language. I love it for what it does for us, how it allows us to explain the pain and the glory, the nuances and the delicacies of our existence. And then it allows us to laugh, allows us to show wit. Real wit is shown in language. We need language.”Maya Angelou

What you will find here
As the title expresses, each one of these pages are filled with words, thoughts, and creative pieces honestly released into a small corner of the internet.
We do not carry much with us into heaven, but we do leave a good bit behind.
Our words being one.
Our words and our stories can outlive any life we live. How beautiful?!
I want to leave my words here. And, I want to live a life unafraid to share my thoughts, stories, and words— no matter how unfinished, messy, and raw they are.
I want to connect with others through our words and stories.
And so, that is exactly what you will find here. You will find some of my own writing, compilations over other people’s words, pictures I love, and other creative work I am playing around with.
Let’s write and learn together. We need one another.
