Excuse the blowing wind— In this video, I say some stuff that may be hard for some folks to hear. I said it all the same. For me, this was a chance to finally really speak directly to a very difficult time in my life, but my decision to do it in this way has everything to do with SCOTUS’s recent overturning of Roe vs. Wade. If that isn’t something you’re interested in hearing my take on, that’s okay! But for those of you who have 18 minutes and want to listen, thanks. I hope that this reaches someone who needs to hear it.

"The Elder Wand (theory): “The wizard who controls the Elder Wand controls Fate.” Between 1932 (Secrets of Dumbledore) and 1938, Albus’ phoenix (Fawkes) gives two tailfeathers to Ollivander the wandmaker... (cont.)"

FIRST, My Testimony of the Spirit – @bykaileyann
"I plan for this book to be in readers hands before winter. Fall is the season of shedding skins, bright colors, and corn mazes. Writing this book has gotten my life back on the right tracks. I'm not afraid to stand and consider a Crossroads anymore - That's where I'm from, it's who I am." @bykaileyann
PROMPT: What has reading taught you about navigating the world? What is one story that has most impacted your worldview or way you move through life?
Here's a micro-view of my bizarre survival story from a home-invasion last year.
DEAREST TEACHER, ... I’m writing to you because quite frankly, I’ve been thinking about doing it for nearly my whole life, and I’m pretty sick of chickening out at this point. I figure, there’ve got to be lots of people like me who, in light of your recent points-of-view, finally said to themselves, “Ah th’heck with it! She ought to know what I have to say.”
