    Conflicted Feelings

    I'm a big time romantic, have always thought that the moment I met my soul-mate I would somehow know it....the stars would be brighter and the music would sound better... Such a day came and I felt I had finally found that person capable of "completing the puzzle."...

    I Don't Believe In Contradictions But I Do

    Ok, I'm not a "believer" in anything  in that I am not even sure that everything's relative.  And I love science and I get it, but I also admit that I have a deep superstitious, romantic side that though scorned by my rational "me" is far stronger in my head.  The problem is...
