    Nothing! Why, do you think I should?

    Rocky Horror is one of those movies that, without fail, each time I come back to it, I think to myself, "This really is one of my absolute favorites of all-time, huh?"

    On any given day, a person can choose to be silent for an untold number of reasons. Often, we're merely existing or listening or processing. Occasionally, we're aiming to hurt or anger someone else; at other times, we're trying to heal inwardly. In many of the worst cases, it's a form of self-defense. Here, Autumn wears hers like armor.
