“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” -John Burroughs
My name is Julia (the nom de plume, Iris Temple, comes from the book The Master’s Violin). The wide-open prairie and poetry have been the furnace of my soul for 20 years now, but a move to Northern Ireland is pending – we’ll see in due time where that brings me artistically. I’m a musician, artist, Irish fanatic, and lover of beauty; above all, I am in love with the Supreme Beauty: my Creator, Savior, and Lord, Jesus the Christ. I walk this life with Him as my guide, and when I cannot hold on, He holds on to me.
