Bryant McGill, Voice of Reason

C. JoyBell C.
“We can be walking around in this world, with bits and pieces of our souls scattered in different time loops and space cracks. You feel like you are always looking for yourself, because you actually are always looking for yourself! You're always looking for those bits and pieces of you. You've got to sit down and remember where you left them at. You've got to quiet the noise and go back to those loops in time and cracks in space that you forgot about and you need to understand yourself in those moments, and embrace yourself. And maybe even embrace those who were around you, with you. That's how you get those pieces back, that's how you sew them back into you.”
C. JoyBell C.

Miguel de Unamuno
“And in touching your own nothingness, in not feeling your permanent base, in not reaching your own infinity, still less your own eternity, you will have a whole-hearted pity for yourself, and you will burn with a sorrowful love for yourself--a love that will consume your so-called self-love, which is merely a species of sensual self-delectation, the self-enjoyment, as it were, of the flesh of your soul.”
Miguel de Unamuno, Tragic Sense of Life

“The way it begins...
It is never the way it ends
No gods or destiny...
Has your life written beforehand

Everyone's journey...
Is to balance their Yin and Yang
And one will know peace...
The moment one can.”
Ricardo Derose

Sai Pradeep
“No one has ever found themselves without being a little lost.”

Joy Harjo
“The woman hangs from the 13th floor window crying for
the lost beauty of her own life. She sees the
sun falling west over the grey plane of Chicago.
She thinks she remembers listening to her own life
break loose, as she falls from the 13th floor
window on the east side of Chicago, or as she
climbs back up to claim herself again.”
Joy Harjo, She Had Some Horses

Amy Tan
“But now that I am old, moving every year closer to the end of my life, I also feel closer to the beginning. And I remember everything that happened that day because it has happened many times in my life. The same innocence, trust, and restlessness, the wonder, fear, and loneliness. How I lost myself. I remember all these things. And tonight, on the fifteenth day of the eighth moon, I also remember what I asked the Moon Lady so long ago. I wished to be found.”
Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club

Laura McHugh
“I used to play a game where I imagined that someone had abandoned me in a strange place & I had to find my way back home-I thought I could do it blind, the same way a lost dog might trek a thousand miles to return to its owner, relying on some mysterious instinct that drew the heart back to where it belonged.”
Laura McHugh, Arrowood

Cheryl R. Cowtan
“An Indigo Bunting let out a trill, a cheery song, reminding me of better days, of hope and happiness and all the lofty promises a blue canary can sing about. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath of the heady morning air. Looking within myself, I searched for the man I once was.”
Cheryl R Cowtan, Girl Desecrated: Vampires, Asylums and Highlanders 1984

Serrena Gragg
Tell the trees;
I need oxygen to live.
Tell them I'm sorry sometimes I don't know how to control the nature in which is inside me”
Serrena Gragg, Inside My Head: Book of Poetry

Lesley Glaister
“Where was the fear? She searched herself as she listened: sometimes the rat-tat-tat of gunfire, rapid and snippy like the keys of two vast duelling type-writers battering out threats to each other on a paper sky.”
Lesley Glaister, Blasted Things

Lucy Powrie, Bookishly Ever After

Shea Ernshaw, A History of Wild Places

“Some have asked me: "How do you write the way you do?" I write in Three Octaves---that is just me........I literally pour every fiber of my being into my writing. What I feel deep down inside of me I write. My life experiences from earliest childhood and living in THE GREAT SOUTHWEST have played a Very IMPORTANT part in who I am.”
Marsha Carol Watson Gandy

“As I heard my name called over and over again---I knew--For The First Time---Who I was----DANCES WITH WOLVES.”
