“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 were the furnace of my soul for 20 years; now that I’ve moved to Belfast, Northern Ireland, I’m slowly learning how to bring art out of these new surroundings. I’m a musician, artist, Irish fanatic, and lover of beauty; above all, I am in love with the Supreme Beauty: my Creator, Saviour, 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.
