Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Night Crew at the Portland Rescue Mission
Location Portland, Oregon, United States
Introduction I'm wide-eyed and mystified. Sunrise still brings tears to my eyes. Shivers run down my spine when I hear sentimental music. I listen to a person's heart, not just the words they're saying. I'm drawn to the offer of Jesus Christ, all my failure in exchange for all His love. Whimsy is out there, look for it. There's a story that forms the backbone of your life, make sure you're proud of it when you fade away. Books are worth more than their price-tag, and a keyboard on your desk should never replace a pencil in your hand. Life is short, dance at the weddings.

A basketball. I could finally dunk.
