Personal Quote: "A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions."
I really love this quote because I'm constantly trying to have my mind stretched by a new experience or by something that stimulates my emotionally or intellectually...which is why I love DeviantArt! There's so many different ways my mind can be stretched by so many incredible artists and their visions and creations! It helps me see the person I want to become and helps me get there...
Another Favorite Quote: "He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster..."
I've also lived in 9 different states during my lifetime... including 20+ years in southern California in the city of Oceanside. I've also been homeless 3 times and lived in a shelter that was part of a homeless program with my then 2 year old son. There's been several times during my life where I've moved to a different state carrying everything I owned...and I loved those life experiences. But since I got sole custody of my then 15 month old son I knew I had to settle down somewhere... southern California is beautiful & amazing but also quite costly and riddled with gangs and violence and crime. I grew up in a not so small city of Quincy, IL and when my son was 3 he & I moved there and we've been here ever since. That was over 10 years ago and I know this is home for us.
