I Have the Drive to Do Well and the Passion to Do Good.

I believe in the power of crossed fingers, smiles and sunshine. I dream about new cities, full bookshelves and the fireworks on the fourth of July.  

I live in Washington, D.C.

On repeat…

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.
