When you’re broken open.


If you’ve torn the bandage off.


In the middle of the fighting.


In your blood.


When you’re perfectly free.

– Rumi

I am …

I have …

lots of freckles, an overly loud laugh, ambition, a big crinkle-nosed smile, tons of allergies, a myriad of ideas, green eyes, my first teddy bear, four tattoos (soon to be five, hopefully), the entire Golden Girls series on DVD, high expectations, a sensitive soul protected by a thick skin  …
