Here is an article from a brio magazine about Twilight.
Taking a close look at the popular ‘Twilight’ fiction series
In the dappled sunlight in the clearing of a meadow on the edge of a forest, 16-year-old Bella Swan’s heart races as GQ-model-handsome Edward Cullen draws near to her. Edward, in love with Bella, musters every ounce of self-control not to kill her. Killing’s his first instinct because he’s a vampire. This scene, a vivid dream of author Stephenie Meyer, sparked her imagination to write Twilight, the first book of a bestselling young-adult series.
From that original dream, Stephenie, a 30-something housewife and mom of three young boys, has birthed a four-novel series that has sent teen girls and women of every age swooning over the star-crossed love story of Bella and Edward.
My friend just told me about your group, so I looked your songs up on itunes. I bought a whole bunch of your songs, and I love them! I especially love "Mirror" though. I have been struggling with an eating disorder for the past year now, but I am almost totally recovered. "Mirror" really spoke to me. To me, it's about how what you see in the mirror is just not important. It's what's on the inside that matters. God loves us for who we are.
I am a poet and there's some stuff that I like and some stuff that I would like to share. this is one of those sharing things and if I could get some feedback that would be great. Because I'm nervous about this stuff.
If today were my day to die
Forget the person that made you cry
Remember me for the smiles and the hugs
And don't forget that you are loved
For if I have ever
Touched your heart in some way
Then you are embedded in mine
And I will still
Always and forever
For if today were my day to die
I know that you would always love me too
