• Remember… (Prophetic Voice Part Deux)

      Simba had grown up, successfully pushing down his past into the depths of his subconscious and living a care-free life with his life motto being Hakuna Matata. (what’s a motto? Nothing! What’s a motto with you? *laughter*). His past came roaring into his current lifestyle thanks to the Baboon who claimed to not only… Continue Reading

  • Prophetic Voice: Starry Night

      The prophetic voice makes everyone uncomfortable. Being prophetic doesn’t necessarily mean predicting the future.
