I want you with passion stained hands and a fist in your heart.
Enchant me with emotion filled syllables that flee from your lips and leave cracks in your voice.
I want you raw and uncut.
*White Oleander - Favorite book of all time.
“ Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
“I regret nothing. No woman with any self-respect would have done less. The question of good and evil will always be one of philosophy's most intriguing problems, up there with the problem of existence itself. I'm not quarreling with your choice of issues, only with your intellectually diminished approach. If evil means to be self-motivated, to live on one's own terms, then every artist, every thinker, every original mind, is evil. Because we dare to look through our own eyes rather than mouth cliches lent us from the so-called Fathers. To dare to see is to steal fire from the Gods. This is mankind's destiny, the engine which fuels us as a race. ”
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander

*Pillars Of The Earth
*Nephilim Stargates - I love reading about other religions and the connections between them.
*Time Traveler's Wife
Movies/Documentaries: (I really don't watch many Movies)
*God Bless America - I received a few awkward glances from close friends who know I don't find many things humorous, but yet I was laughing uncontrollably while watching this movie.
"My name is Frank. That's not important. The important question is: who are you? America has become a cruel and vicious place. We reward the shallowest, the dumbest, the meanest and the loudest. We no longer have any common sense of decency. No sense of shame. There is no right and wrong. The worst qualities in people are looked up to and celebrated. Lying and spreading fear is fine as long as you make money doing it. We've become a nation of slogan-saying, bile-spewing hatemongers. We've lost our kindness. We've lost our soul. What have we become? We take the weakest in our society, we hold them up to be ridiculed, laughed at for our sport and entertainment. Laughed at to the point, where they would literally rather kill themselves than live with us anymore."
*World War 2 era movies
*Wake Up - I loved this documentary about a man who could see angels, demons, auras and ghosts that were invisible to those around him. For me personally it was validating the presence of our own energies, that we are all connected and how we influence the world around us.
Shows: ( I don't watch much T.V.)
*The Big Picture - Thom Hartmann
Music: (I'm excited)
***Tom Odell - Especially the song "Another Love". The passion he pours into this song reverberates through my soul and leaves my weak at my knees.
*Marina and The Diamonds
* Milky Chance
*Mumford and Sons
I don't really have any favorite foods, but I enjoy freshly made food. I prefer to make things completely from scratch, especially things that I know are heavily processed, mostly sweets. I have been learning to bake with yeast, so here recently I have been making a lot of breads. I think I have have mastered the cinnamon roll. Before my quest with recipes that call for yeast I had perfected my brownie/cookie making capabilities. This approach helps to treat my kids/save money, plus it helps to cut down on junk food consumption considering how much work is involved to get a sweet tooth fix.
Foods I don't like:
*Store bought sweets
*Ham and beans
*Anything with a lot of salt
*Candy - I enjoy some chocolates, Lindor is my favorite. I don't like any type of hard candies.
I am cautious and mildly indecisive. I like to weigh out the pro's and con's to most situations. This can make me somewhat of a pain in the butt, but it's just my nature. I am very responsible and I do, eventually make concrete decisions but not without a lot of thought and deliberation.
