I picked up this book not quite sure what to expect. It wasn't very thick, the print was large, and the text widely-spaced. It was a children's book. A children's book about a china rabbit, of all things.

It's something that perplexed me for some time. Maybe you don’t understand why I was perplexed over this seemingly simple concept. “Love”, after all, is a word we use all the time, as though we perfectly understand its meaning. Allow me to shed a little light on the subject.

"What is truth?" It’s a timeless question, and I’m sure Pilate wasn’t the first one to pose it. Indeed, it seems like it’s more relevant today than it was two millennia ago. What is truth?

Mon amie Grace on her blog Don't You Know That I'm Singing recently gave me a Liebster Award (thanks so much, Grace!). So now I need to answer the questions she wants me to answer so that I can officially be a winner.

Life is a story, and we are the protagonists of our lives. But life doesn't really read like a story. At least, not like the stories that resonate with me the most. There are some stories that echo the truths we hold dear and the things we long for most, even when we don't always realize it. Those are the stories that always stay with us. They are the stories that have meaning, that make us grateful to be alive. They find hope in the midst of darkness and help us see the world in a whole new way.

This is a dark world, isn’t it? There are so many things wrong with this world, after all. This is a world where cruelties and injustice are reality. Maybe it doesn’t strike you as very terrible, but if you were to stop and think of all the savagery fellow humans do to one another, I think you’d see it in a very different light. We rape, torture, murder, and abuse each other, all to satisfy ourselves in our own crooked ways. More often, we act out of selfishness than love.

Stories are important. Those of us who are naturally imaginative may hold this conviction very strongly, even though it may be difficult to express in mere words. We just know that stories affect us deeply—they make us feel so much more alive. For those of us who are the more pragmatic, realist type, we may hold to a more skeptical view. Some pragmatists may even go so far as to say that stories are of no importance whatsoever, merely being sources of mindless entertainment to pass time better served doing something actually "productive."

I think the thing I need to work on most is courage. I lack basic courage—that's a fact. Basic courage to do basic things. Like talking to someone I'm not very familiar with, asking a favor, conducting a phone call, attempting to make friends with a Gen Z girl (in real life), applying for a job, or dealing with people during a tour at the local college. (Pretty silly, right?) It's amazing how many things fear prevents me from doing—you're probably thinking right now that it's also really quite ridiculous, and I would wholeheartedly agree with you. It is ridiculous.

Time does fly, doesn't it? Sometimes I wish there were such a thing as a time machine. But there isn't. So, I guess life must be lived without looking wistfully back into the past which is now lost. Only the present can be changed, and the future can be changed indirectly by what you do in the present.

Sophie Foster has always been the weird one. Understandable, considering the fact that she's the only twelve-year-old high school senior in her class. And that she has photographic memory. And is capable of telepathy. . . .

Hey, again, you all! I thought that since I've been gone for so long, I'm like a complete stranger to some of those subscribed here. So this is what can be called an introduction post. A re-introduction post, if you will! ;) Hopefully this will suffice until I fix my about page.

I know it's been a long while since you've heard from me. Sorry about that. I guess I (honestly) got bored of thinking of things to post and just gave it up! Since then, however, sometimes I'd come up with an idea for a post occasionally, but then put off actually writing it until later. This is where that procrastination stops. . . .
