I love picnics and swinging in the park. I believe in social justice. I follow Jesus. I can be quiet and keep to myself, or just spout crazy things off without thinking...depends on who you are, how well I know you, and my mood. I'm laid back and generally take whatever comes. I would rather be blind than deaf, but I'm glad to be neither at the moment. I can't live without laughter. I don't like going into an airport without getting on a plane and flying far away. I'm always itching to travel somewhere. I love being so high in the mountains that clouds pass by your porch. I'm glad I was born and raised in the South, but I can't stay here forever. My friend once called me her human journal. I took that as an amazing compliment. Episodes of The Office are never long enough. I've had the privilege to volunteer with refugees from all over the world. It's heartbreaking and joyful at the same time. I live and breathe in paradoxes. Love is a verb.
