A Touch too Aware

A touch too aware, forever and always. Of the weight on my shoulders and the pull of gravity, dragging me towards the ground; Of my indomitable soul and spirit, that keeps me upright, nonetheless; Of my throbbing head, and shaky knees and tiring feet; Of the oxygen and fire and energy that move them and...

Resurrecting Faith

As a consummate lover of language, I have been made to concede that sometimes even the most persuasive of words fall on deaf, indifferent ears. As a believer in the virtue of humanity, I have been confronted with gross injustice and extreme apathy. As a supporter of human agency and its perfect ability to transform,... Continue Reading →

Atlas Shrugged – A Review ​

  “By the essence and nature of existence, contradictions cannot exist.” She called it her magnum opus. How very like her.
