It Understands Me


My laptop listens.

I spill my thoughts and feelings.

It understands me.

I Feel Her Throughout


Close my eyes and breathe.

She inhales my soul . . .We meet.

I feel her throughout.

It’s better to have loved than to never have loved at all


It’s better to have loved than to never have loved at all. Not my quote, but a very powerful and widely used one. Or perhaps, like my first novel, maybe we will find our true love in the realms of the dead?

Music Video of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow


I’ve always been filled with imagination since I was a little kid.  As an adult, I still dream and work hard until it’s hard to believe I’m living things I’ve imagined.  Fiction plays a huge role in inspiring our reality.  And vice versa, writers often infuse reality into fiction. Storytelling has a way of bringing us humans closer because it draws out our emotions.  I believe as adults, we should never stop imagining, and if we have a story, don’t be afraid to share it.  You never know, you may change the world.

Here’s a nice music video of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, characters of the Game of Thrones novel and television show.  The song “If You Leave Me Now” by Foxes matches the scenes from this awesome show.  Last Sunday, in Episode 6 of Season 7, Daenerys and Jon’s romance blossomed.  I love romance.  Nothing beats that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you love someone.

I don’t watch much television or movies that much, but Games of Thrones is the exception.  I also have the books.  They’re so good, and a nice break from work.  Though, Games of Thrones inspires me to work harder.  Author and Executive Producer George R.R. Martin is so inspirational!

Kiss Me Until I Can’t Breathe


My heart beats slower.

Kiss me until I can’t breathe.

Time for me to rest.
