For me, writing is therapy - a stimulating way to wring from my mind whatever irreverent, reflective and whimsical mental meanderings resonated with me at the same time I had a short window of time to write them down here.  I believe in wonder and beauty, and in finding deeper meaning in things, even those that seem trivial on their surface.

"That which does not destroy, strengthens." ~ Friedrich Nietsche

"It ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done." ~ Rocky Balboa 

"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'where have I gone wrong?'  Then a voice says to me ... this is going to take more than one night." ~ Charles M. Schulz
