November 20, 1994 – Sunday – 1:25 p.m.

It’s been a year since my audition for a scholarship at Lees-McRae.  This is the end of this section of this notebook, and since it has been two years from the time I began my journal, I will rewrite quotes and phrases from My Book of Days from the past year.

“Life will not kill the dream I dream.”

“I will never forget that weird feeling I got on May 8, 1993.”

“This can’t be happening!”

“Remember…only friends.”

“This is a very special gift…it’s filled with love inside.”

“Right now, I’m in my room, my home, but it seems as if I’m so much farther away.”

“This could actually be fun.”

“The grass has died.”

“Whoever says hello, must once day say goodbye.”



“The flowers are fading.”

“Hank pulled me off to the side.”

“I will never stop fighting!”

“I’m waiting for a new sun to rise.”

“…and kiss them both on the cheek.  I will.”

“I will no longer climb that tree.”

“What do you do when you want something you can’t have?”

“I held his hand and felt his pain.”

“But in those looks there is a distance.”

“We all know those kind only grow in the summer.”

“Elephant shoe.”

“Where is that someone?  This life won’t let me stop to breathe.”

“Well Jacob, you had to be there to keep certain things together through the bad times.”

“One more person!”

“Today I saved the world.”

“For in the end, great will be your reward.”

“This is my story.”

“I’m letting go of things whether I want to or not.”

“A land hopefully flowing with milk.”

“Another girl will always come along.”

“No one can prepare you for the world.”

“All of these voices.”

“All I can say is thank you.”

“Will I ever find the blessing in this heartache.”

“Perhaps we will laugh together again.”

“She blent in with thousands of other girls I didn’t know.”

“God created me so he could share me with the rest of his creation.”

“I will possibly sit close to someone else while Jenna does the same.”

“The way night comes when day is done.”

“This is going to hurt.”

“She kissed me on my right cheek.”

“My winter dreams have changed.”

“Can it already be May?”

“Thank you Renee.”

“Objects in the mirror.”

“This is you.”

“I will be the king I was meant to be.”

“I will be an eagle’s feather.”

“Then that is where I will go.”

“The pain now is part of the happiness then.”

“All of this and I don’t even know her name.”

“Nothing would please me more.”
