“Life was a revolving mystery, sometimes terrifying, sometimes maddening. But always provocative. Interesting. And although its meaning seemed beyond my grasp, it never seemed meaningless.”
Christina Meldrum, Madapple

“Words are like physical objects around us that appear to be continuous and whole but are in fact composed of particles too small for for the eye to see, for the brain to imagine. Words oversimplify reality. Break open a word, and it's like breaking a mold. The contents seep free, become something new.”
Christina Meldrum, Madapple

“From within this chrysalis, the universe outside is the aberration; if I exit, the aberration will be me.”
Christina Meldrum, Madapple
