The matter is not to become what one would like, but to have the courage to be it.

I am made of dreams, pain, anger, desire— the desire to fight, and to win but, most of all, the desire to communicate.

The use of ‘Words’, the ability to express oneself, to share one’s thoughts, to give guidance, comfort, to bring happiness, instil courage, bring companionship and much more, is such an important gift.
So many people choose to hide their thoughts and desires out of fear of being judged. I choose to share them with you, regardless of the judgment or expectations of others.

Bearing that in mind, my greatest advice to you is…

Don’t let anyone tell you your dreams are too big: our only limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Face your dreams, bring them to life: without dreams you’re not living, you’re just existing.

If you’re curious and want to know more, read the other pages, get to know me and let me know what you think.

There are so many precious moments that we often ignore when we find ourselves caught in the momentum of a busy life. It is easy to ignore the flowing of water from the tap or the warmth of the Sun, but we must learn to slow down and observe these everyday wonders.

The Book

Jaxon Mitchell is nine years old when he arrives at the Laporte orphanage after a family tragedy. There he meets little Jas and together they dream of a life far away, and putting a smile on Jas’s face becomes Jax’s purpose in life.
When he is adopted and taken to the other side of the country, he spends his days waiting for Jas to answer his letters, but the mailbox remains empty, and he is forced to admit that his new mother was right after all; Jas wants nothing more to do with him.
It’s not until seventeen years later that he discovers that those letters were never sent.
As soon as he gets a break in his busy schedule, he books a vacation in a ski-resort in Minnesota, not far from the orphanage where he spent that fateful year with Jas, hoping to find her. Unfortunately, he finds no trace of his childhood friend, who seems to have vanished into thin air.
Almost on the point of giving up and returning to his hectic lifestyle in New York, Jaxon meets Skylar, an aerobics instructor who is not even slightly impressed by his fame. Despite the animosity, however, there is something about her that reminds him of little Jas.

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.
