Breaking the Illusion...

I don't think anything that I would write would be as compelling as the writings of other people. I'm not that big on quotes, until I have to write something:

"We create the illusions we need to go on. And one day, when they no longer dazzle or comfort, we tear them down, brick by glittering brick, until we are left with nothing but the bright light of honesty. The light is liberating. Necessary. Terrifying. We stand naked and emptied before it. And when it is too much for our eyes to take, we build a new illusion to shield us from its relentless truth." ~Libba Bray

What do you folks think about this? Does she speak truth?

The difference between illusion and reality has been a large part of my life in the last few years. Accepting the illusions as they are has been more sad than I thought, so I continue my search for reality and accepting the illusions as they are.

Quick, and Extremely Interesting (not really) Bio

Ryan and I have been married for 2 years and 2 months. He is very talented in all kinds of things (of course, I am the biased wife, so not too sure how seriously you can take me), and I am a great cleaner (of course, those of you who know Ryan, I would have to be). We argue who loves the other more, and we both think we're right.

I have never done a personal blog before, so I know I'm on a great adventure, and I apologize to those of you who get dragged into it. But if you can use a computer mouse, then I think you can make your own choices.
