Some think of them as “fictional.”

But they crave things, the same as anyone.

Their needs are different; not food or water or air. Some crave redemption; some forgiveness; some understanding; some simply need their stories told.

They cry out to me, the forgotten ones; the overlooked; the vilified. They plead with me, soundlessly.

They have no tongues, so I become their voice.

I don’t write for you.

I don’t write for myself.

I write for them.




Personal Quote(s):

"Every night will end,
And every day will start,
With a grateful prayer and a thankful heart!"
(Ebenezer Scrooge, The Muppet Christmas Carol)

"They say, best men are moulded out of faults;
And, for the most, become much more the better
For being a little bad"
(Mariana, Measure for Measure)

"Of course it is happening inside your head...but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"
(Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)

"How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world."
(Portia, The Merchant of Venice)

I'm so sorry for the late reply, and for not contacting you as of late!

RL has been mostly happy, but very busy. I've had a few health problems as of late, though, and they've interfered with my theater work. Turns out my situational asthma is now just asthma, and I also have some respiratory infection or other. These things combined to make me have bad cold symptoms for most of two months (not straight, but I was sick more than I was well), and that caused me to have to drop out of my last play, Don Juan in Hell, just weeks before performance. But it's getting treated now, and I'm currently in a dramatic reading of James Thurber's The White Deer (no Christmas Carol this year, sadly =( ).

My sleep schedule has been fluctuating wildly, from golden one week, to totally nocturnal the next. It doesn't help that I'm spending so much time on IMVU, and I got a Tumblr RP Ask Blog for my favorite Scooby-Doo character, Ben Ravencroft. Both IMVU and Tumblr are really fun, but really addictive.

Oh, and I'm going to be the Ghost of Jacob Marley (as Scrooge saw him in A Christmas Carol) for Halloween! =D

BTW, a belated happy birthday! Have your cake and eat it too Party  I read your Journal, and I see that you've been feeling much the way I myself have of late: life is hard, but it is life. I've come to the conclusion that I'd rather live a real life, even if it's hard, than a false easy one by escaping through Tumblr or IMVU. Struggles are what remind us we are human, and give us the trials we need to become better people. As usual, A Christmas Carol is my guide when I'm feeling like things get too hard; Jacob and Ebenezer tried to insulate themselves from the pain of living in the world (though they used very different means than me to do so), and ended up not really living. 

"I have a home to call my own and at least I have a job. And even if my loved ones live out of state at least I have people who love me. I haven't accomplished as much as I wish but I have accomplished things.  I have a sense of wonder and joy and child like fun still alive in me. Hard to find sometimes but it is still there. I can find moments of happiness and simple fun in nature and silliness and warm comforts. I when I have the presence of mind to do so, I rest assured that God loves, forgives, and accepts me and looks out for me.
Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful. Things don't have to be perfect to be worthwhile, ESPECIALLY people."


^This resonated with me on so many levels. Aside from the bit about the job, I could have written it, word for word.

Recently, I was talking to an acquaintance outside my building, and a guy came up with his son, saying that he needed some change for the bus, as they were stranded. She shook her head, and I didn't have any money to spare. He told us that he's a single parent, struggling, trying to teach his son good values, etc., and with God's help, he could do it. I told him "I believe it." When they left, my acquaintance whispered to me, "I don't believe it. I believe he's teaching his son how to con people out of money." And I told her that yeah, I got that vibe too, but maybe we were both wrong, and that I'd learned that life is a lot more rewarding if you believe in everyone. That doesn't mean you believe everyone, no matter what they say... it means you believe in them, that they'll find the spark of goodness in all humans. She just kind of shook her head, but I thought you might get it.

One last thing from me. I know that you, like me, find inspiration in quotes. I think a quote that is applicable to both our lives right now comes from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It seems simplistic on the surface, until you look at it more closely. It is a hard truth, but when you accept it, things get easier.

"The hardest thing in this world is to live in it."

Thank you for the long, heartfelt response and birthday wishes. :hug:

That's a great quote from Buffy, used at two critical points in their lives.
Sorry to hear about your health issues, I can relate. But glad to hear you are getting effective treatment and getting better.
Also sorry you had to drop out of Don Juan but it sounds like you got right back up on stage as soon as possible. Yea! :clap:
Marley's Ghost for Halloween is a great idea. :giggle: He's enough of a cultural icon that a lot of people will probably recognize him with out being told.

I'm glad my journal resonated with you, that really make sit all worth while. I was trying to convince myself and boost my own spirits as much as anyone else's.I don't have life figured out but I'm happy to share my process of discovering via mistakes what clues I can deduce.

Yes, I like to believe their is hope for everyone to some degree. Of course they have to want to change and be helped but there is always the possibility. i got exactly what you meant.

THANK you for responding and sharing, I really needed it and your timing was spot on. :D
