I am a married mother of one gorgeous, smart mouthed daughter. I live in southern NC, study Buddhism and write mediocre fanfiction.

~Eckhart Tolle

In every country, we should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights. With it comes a certain decency, humility and community spirit. In the demon-haunted world that we inhabit by virtue of being human, this may be all that stands between us and the enveloping darkness.
~Carl Sagan

Just keep breathing.
