** Hi Lauren***
I am a full time teacher, part time photographer and professional smartass.


"'Thou art God.' It's not a message of cheer and hope, Jubal. It's a defiance-- and an unafraid, unabashed assumption of personal responsibility." He looked sad. "But I rarely put it over, A very few, just these few here with us, our brothers, understood me and accepted the bitter along with the sweet, and stood up and drank it--groked it. The others, hundreds of thousands of others, either insisted on treating it as a prize without a contest -- a conversion -- or ignored it. No matter what I said, they insisted on thinking of God as something outside themselves. Something that yearns to take every indolent moron to His breast and comfort him. The notion that the effort has to be their own ... and that is the trouble they are in is all their own doing... is one that they can't or won't entertain." - Valentine Michael Smith, in Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land
