My name is Quill Kirkland. I am a writer/professional and technical writing student with a universe floating around in my head. I live in a world all my own, so it's sometimes hard to get me to focus on reality. I have been a lover of the written word since the age of three. My books are my life and all of the worlds that they have unlocked for me, I'm here to share with you.

This was done through a technique called “fore-edge painting,” which is an illustration that is hidden on the edge of the pages of the book. The technique allegedly dates back to the 1650s.

The world has lost a great voice today. A self-taught master of the written word, Angelou also spoke no less than six languages. A traumatic and violent childhood, marked by years of silence, led to a blossoming of her artistry and her gifts. She was a champion for civil rights and justice, and on the inner circle with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 2011 she received our nation’s civilian highest honor, the Medal of Freedom. We know now why the caged bird sings, and we release her spirit today back to the starry heavens. May your light shine ever on, Maya Angelou.

George Takei, on the passing of Maya Angelou (via englishmajorhumor) —

She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’
