Breeze of autumn swooshes the leaves,


The world gushes forth fast and furious.


 


As I sit in a solemn wooden chair,


Resting my neck in a wine red cushion


By my window, lacy white curtains pushed aside


 


Sun sets behind the cedars and birches


Sky painted in a dull purple with


Shades of orange, yellow, and tinge of my heart.


 


My shawl of breathing green with a red border


Still wrapped round covering my hair...

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Marilyn Monroe
