In Society we can feel so alone. There is a place we can go to that makes us feel safe. For most of us it is not physical, but can feel so real we don't want to leave it. We find ourselves getting lost in the walls we have built for our safety.The greatest moments (and normally the scariest) are when we can let someone into our sanctuaries.Take a look through my stained glass past the masquerade at midnight.These are the inside of my walls. I just pray they move you to build your own Stained Glass Windows inside your sanctuaries. Follow MelodyAWriter on Twitter

This time of year I always take some sort of crazy risk, and it always changes my life. Three years ago, I would have never thought one risk would lead to so many others. The moral of the story - you only have to be brave once to be crazy enough to do it again. #RecklessandBrave #LongLiveUs #timehop #Fierce

My Favorite Things About Social Fresh East 2014

Storytellers, here are a few of my favorite things from Social Fresh East 2014:
