Who am I? Nobody, somebody, and everybody.
Dissident; Amateur wordsmith.
BIO from ALL THINGS DEMOCRAT:
Annie resides in Texas where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Legal Studies and Master of Public Policy (to impress her mother). She is also a Certified Paralegal who proudly rejected Law School to pursue a life of civil disobedience (for the stylist, zip-tie bracelets). She is active in state and local politics, but her real passion lies in social and political activism. She founded her blog Define – Don’t Defend in 2010 and Tweets at @annie_tx where you’ll find some surprising names in an impressive list of followers (https://twitter.com/Anne_TX).

A few QUOTES that I can RELATE TO….
“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.” Gloria Steinem
“Why did I write? Because I found life unsatisfactory” – Tennessee Williams
Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~E.L. Doctorow
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Begin it now. – GOETHE
“Today more than ever before, the worst crime against peace is to leave the world as it is: if we leave the world as it is, the present and future will be determined by perpetual war. …achieving peace involves radically reversing all that impedes humanity from being humane” -H. Chavez
“We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change.
Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” -Howard Zinn
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth
“Easy reading is damn hard writing.” ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
