Writing

I stayed up late last night reading.

My English class, Children's Literature, has given me a new love of reading. And so I do that now all the time. I feel bad that I let books get away from me these last 2 years, but now they're some of my best friends.

I finished reading Bridge To Terabithia, and realized...

Well I realized that the author of that book changed the world. The book touched my heart, and reading it when I was young taught me lessons, I'm sure I'm not the only one. 

You can change the world by writing.

And I feel that to some extent.... maybe I can change the world. I really want to. I want to meet new people and to change their lives, and to see new places and to move a grain of sand in the Sahara Desert and let the desert be different because I moved that grain of sand... and no one else did. So I changed the world.

And I fell asleep and wrote a haiku in my sleep.

Here you go!

Trees at night rustle 
Shaking hands as if to say
Good night and thank you.
