“Never presume to know a person based on the one dimensional window of the internet. A soul can’t be defined by critics, enemies or broken ties with family or friends. Neither can it be explained by posts or blogs that lack facial expressions, tone or insight into the person’s personality and intent. Until people “get that”, we will forever be a society that thinks Beautiful Mind was a spy movie and every stranger is really a friend on Facebook.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder

“She remembered Grace telling her about Lorcan's evasiveness when she'd first joined the Noctourne-his ability to speak without saying anything, to talk in riddles.

“Sonnet I

If thee must say that I am not who I am,

That I am not real or true,

Then thou must say you are not as well,

For we either walk in fairytales and dance to our dreams,

Or we die trying to capture a miracle between the ordinary moments,

We rejoice in the gratitude for our needs met,

But we pray for the staircases and open doors to our desires,

We redefine our gratitude with another day,

Another dance of praise to Thee for undoing are mistakes of unneeded wants and needs we want, but not met.”
Shannon L. Alder

“The mysteries of life include the external and the internal conundrums that each person encounters in a world composed of competing ideologies and agents of change. Conflicting ideas include political, social, legal, and ethical concepts. Agents of change include environmental factors, social pressure to conform, aging, and the forces inside us that made us into whom we are as well as the forces compelling us to be a different type of person.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Jan Morris, Conundrum

Vicki Grant
“This whole conundrum reminds me of that kids' game, "Which would you rather?" Which would you rather: Have your nose torn off by a grizzly or have a lungworm burrow through your eyeball? Have genital leprosy or elephantiasis of the face? Spend the rest of your life alone in a magnificent mansion or live in an overflowing outhouse with Beyonce?
Which would I rather: Tell the truth and break a solemn promise to my comatose friend -- or lie and lose the only girl who ever looked at me like I wasn't some idioot flapdrol? It's a game I can't win.”
Vicki Grant, Tell Me When You Feel Something
