Not just anything, mind you, something. It’s a subtle difference.

I’ve dabbled with hair braids and Dr. Suess-like poems, but not at the same time–braiding behind the head takes two hands, leaving none left for rhyming. In the fall, I stare outside and wish for summer, and in the summer I sit outside and ponder serious issues like moldy cheese and why raccoons scavenge for trash in the darkness of night.

“You make me believe in happiness... if I had my way, if anything were up to me, I’d never be without you. You are my purpose.”
Courtney Kirchoff

“There were so many viciously sarcastic ways to respond, Jaden’s brain was temporarily paralyzed due to witty comeback overload.”
Courtney Kirchoff, Jaden Baker

“The two studied one another for what seemed hours, neither saying a word. Jaden’s first inclination was to yell and demand his freedom, but something held him back. Here was a new man, and a new set of mind games. He waited for the old man to speak first and introduce himself, as Dalton had upon their first formal meeting. The stranger remained silent.”
Courtney Kirchoff, Jaden Baker

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.”
J.K. Rowling

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
