Anything but ordinary–what life is really all about

I’ve always been a dreamer. Finding possibility in the impossible, accepting the challenge when someone tells me I can’t do something, and going to bed at night knowing that my dreams with eyes wide open will always beat the dreams I see in my sleep.

Strip me. Remove my guards and my walls and my endless goodbyes Remove my questions and wondering and Remove all of my control Use your hands To read my spine Press your pages Into mine And dog-ear your favorite parts with kisses and sweat and tickling breath.

What is ‘beautiful’?

This post was inspired after I came across a blog written by a mutual friend from back home, Kami.  In Kami’s blog she talked about her reasons behind deleting her Facebook.  She said that her newsfeed was constantly being flooded with quotes, pictures, mantras and fitness-inspired images saying things like “muscle is the new skinny” […]
