"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules...

Steve Jobs

White Pants

I never buy new clothes. I have this theory: Clothing manufacturers make too many clothes and I can buy them at a discounted price by shopping second-hand.

Rosaries Hang Over A Machete

She comes to you with a kaleidoscope filled with multi-colored worries. Blood red drenched massacre overrides love. Orange, yellow sun covered evening as people shed clear tears. Blue sadness pours over the summer of 2016. Green mountains hide her away. Lush coverage she traveled back into, unaware of what happened. She knew something had happened. Her best friend handed his…

A Misfit Is Born

Cleaning out the attic, I stumbled across a picture. I don’t have many pictures from my past. Most of them were lost in between moves and crashing electronics.
