I am a reader, a writer, and a rover. I read because I ache to be in the euphoric state one achieves when immersed in a tornado of words. I write because these words descend upon me, even in sleep, and I will not, cannot, deny them a home on the page. I rove to discover what else in this vast, enchanting world I am capable of sensing, learning, and achieving. I am fascinated by the beast and the beauty of humanity. I am captivated by the intense wild of nature. I gather experiences like the luxuries they are, tucking them in the pocket of my soul. Each new day brings a new revelation, beyond my wildest dreams, that strains and sharpens my ever-growing imagination. The world is changing, and I, like a wave in the sea, am tossed with it, into the exhilarating unknown.
