"The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention." - Oscar Wilde

Leo was just a boy on his deathbed - with no one to give him the love he needed in his last days. No one until she arrived. She brought into his life, the light of kindness that he never knew existed. She brought him the possibility of getting better and finally leaving the hospital bed he has been on for the last six months.

Everyone's heard a picture is worth a thousand words, but when you only have a few months to live it can be worth so much more. Noah Prescott wanted nothing more than to be your everyday typical 15-year-old boy, but with stage 4 melanoma, he was anything but normal. Depressed and completely ready to give up on life, he has lost all interest in the world around him. That is until he meets Glenn Green, the dying boy with a sunny disposition. Unable to accept Noah's pessimistic outlook on life, Glenn sets out to show the younger teen that life might not turn out how he pictured it, but it can still hold so much beauty. That is, if you know where to look.

This won't be updated regularly.

Will take suggestions and contributions from other Penanians.

Adventure
Romance

A boy who feels nothing, and a girl who feels everything...

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

KELSIE ELLIS can't go anywhere without experiencing someone else's pain. Diagnosed with an acute case of mirror-touch synthaesthesia since she was little, one bad experience and she was automatically placed into a plain, five-by-seven padded room in Saint Michael's Institute under the guise of keeping herself from experiencing any more excruciating pain...  No visitors are allowed to see her outside of the staff, so she's alone with nothing but her thoughts and the endless silence, which could drive anybody crazy.

Until she gets her first visitor ever.

When 23 year old HUNTER BARRET—born with the inability to feel pain and emotionally closed off—is sent in to meet with her from a desperate request from his father, everything logical is thrown out the window...

Because when they touch, crazy things happen, and life as they know it has changed around them—for better or worse.

Is this new discovery a gift or a curse when their own hearts are on the line??

Tragedy

This is a poem that I was inspired to write about Rosemary Kennedy, a relative of the famous Kennedy family. She had a very sad turn of events in her life and I recommend you read about her. It speaks much to how mental health was back then and how so many were misunderstood or misdiagnosed and treated in that time. Also in my poetry collection "At The Core: Prose and Poetry"

Tragedy

So this is just more of a blog for keeping track of the progression of my illness and my feelings on what's going on. I'll be updating everyday with diet, excercize, symptoms, treatment, feelings, and other notes. Since I'll be pretty explicit I'm rating this blog R. Like I said I'll be giving updates daily and later on I'll do a masterpost that explains everything.

A dystopian future in which true love is outlawed and pornography is god. One man decides to choose a different path..

Apocalyptic echoes of 1984 and Brave New World. Porn Sick Sad World is more relevant now than ever.
