“For you do not yet know the strength of your hearts, and you cannot foresee what each may meet upon the road.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
If you had asked me many years ago if I ever thought I would be able to share the words I love and the work I write with the world, I would have sadly told you no. For, although I had a passion to share these loves, I never thought I would have the chance. My voice is too quiet, my manner too reserved, I feared that I would forever be hidden away in my hobbit hole, safe, but at a price.
So now I say, Welcome, friend! I am embarking on an adventure, and would be delighted by your company. I pray those who join me find something here of value. In a world that skims the surface of emotion and thought, I hold the hope that sharing our words, images, and passions, allow us to find deeper connections.
Let us learn to find the strength of our hearts.
