"We all have the inner voice somewhere within us. You can call it whatever you’d like: intuition, the voice of ancestors, guardian angels… God… It’s all the same, and it’s always present. We just find ourselves thinking that we know better than that voice, or blatantly ignoring its unspoken advice. I’d felt it for some time; the presence of something other than myself. It wasn’t a pleasant feeling at all, but more so like a dark shadow that followed me around for the purpose of making me feel uneasy. In retrospect, there was something trying to alert me to the fact that my life was totally out of order and headed no certain direction."

-Jarray Davis

Elevators in My Mind

" Why did I name the book Elevators in My Mind? It's simple... What does an elevator do all day? It goes up and down; that's all it does. Up and down. The title is a metaphor that represents my emotional state over the course of the memoir."
