Michelle’s Recent Updates

“You rarely know, in the moment, when it's the last time you'll do something. Most of the time, the whole thing just sneaks away in the night, never to be seen or heard from again, not even sending back so much as a postcard to say hello.”
Michelle Cuevas, Beyond the Laughing Sky

“Change is the nature of nature,'" she read. "'For example, stars expand as they grow older. They grow from a star, to a red super-giant, to a supernova. When a massive star explodes at the end of its life, the explosion dispenses different elements-helium, carbon, oxygen, iron, nickel-across the universe, scattering starduest. That stardust now makes up the planets, including ours.”
Michelle Cuevas, Beyond the Laughing Sky

“The truth is...you're only as invisible as you feel, imaginary or not.”
Michelle Cuevas, Confessions of an Imaginary Friend
