The Seasons Are Changing And I Am Too

The weather in Phoenix is beginning to cool. The 110 degree days are easing into the low-90s, and it's a welcomed change. I've always loved autumn, despite the lack of changing trees and sweating profusely while trick-or-treating most years. This year is no different.

Moments of Questioning

I want few things, but they all seem so unlikely: to uncover my truth, manifest my innermost thoughts, and capture your heart.
