A GEEK BY DESIGN
Here you shall find a collective treasure trove dedicated to my passions in life featuring everything from actors to art and any other creative contrivance in between.

As for me... I consider myself to be a unique individual who follows the beat of my own little drum. I'm the type of person who can see the true beauty within when everyone else around me can see nothing but flaws. I find comfort in the soft scent lingering after a summer rain and the feel of sand between my toes. I would rather stick my nose in a comic book, then flip through the pages of a fashion magazine. I am more likely to be wandering around a thrift store than strolling through the mall. I collect action figures and I'm always eager to have a plastic light-saber duel in the park. I am a geek by design...
Another quote I put together relating to things currently going on in my life… sometimes there are just no words… and for those times, there are tears…

Hit a rough patch in my life so I put this together to remind myself that no matter how weak I feel, there is strength within me that will help me move on…

This is my hubby, lurking about the alleyways and streets of Columbus, Ohio this past weekend while attending Wizard World’s Ohio Comic Con.  Right now he’s in a cosplay contest hosted by Wizard World and he has until 5pm this Friday to secure over 100 votes to take back the lead.  In order to help him win, all you have to do is go to the link below and like his picture when it pops up.  Simple as that!  So if you have a Facebook account, head on over and show this real life killer doll some love!

Months of lost creativity finally came together when I found myself once more and surprisingly put this together during the past two restless evenings.  What began as a monochrome vexel turned into something so much more and after it was all said and done, I consider this to be one of my finest pieces of work in quite some time.

Words always seem to escape me when I need them the most, so I will just say a simple thank you to a man who has inspired me to reach for my dreams, even when they seemed daunting.  This man is truly awe-inspiring and over the past year I have had the pleasure of showcasing his work on Facebook, reaching nearly 100,000 of his fans the world around through the Peter Dinklage Fan Community.  It has been overwhelming to see just how many people Peter has inspired through his dedicated work in film and theater, so to this I raise my glass in a toast and wish Peter a very blessed name day on his 44th year in this realm!https://www.facebook.com/peterdinklagefancommunity

"His face grew curious and his half-cocked smile seemed to fade as he looked down, catching the sight of his own reflection staring back at him from the metal table. A broken man looked back, a cracked face of white fading behind streams of blackened tears. Scars, marred and jagged, peeked out from beneath their painted camouflage, a face from the past, mocking in silence. A reminder of days thought long forgotten…"This is an excerpt from One Bad Day, a short story I wrote 5  years ago.  The rest of the story can be read at fanfiction.net at the URL below…

“I will not say do not weep.” Merry whispered. “Gandalf once told us that not all tears are an evil my dear Pip. Fare the well my friend.” Merry’s eyes then drew closed as his arm fell away from Pippin’s face, where it came to rest upon the covers of his bed. No breath passed beyond Merry’s lips as his chest stilled, while the fire began to slowly fade at his side. Pippin reached forward and drew Merry’s hand into his own pressing it to his lips as tears fell along his hand and down Merry’s still arm.”This is an excerpt from the short story By Gondor’s Grace, which I wrote 10 years ago.  The rest of the story can be read at my website Memoirs of Shire which you can reach by clicking on the photo above.

I finally got around to watching the commencement speech Peter gave for the 2012 graduates at Bennington College after having it bookmarked for 8 months…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuEfEv0OlsY
Towards the end of the video Peter made a very profound statement which inspired me to create this graphic. Needless to say, this is a reminder that I and everyone else should live by day to day.  Thank you Peter for the confirmation that we are ALL shining stars!
