    Lonely Loner

    My family and friends are often amazed and appalled at how much time I spend alone. It's like I live in prison, just without guards, other inmates and I'm free to come and go as I please. Just wanted to share. And I like the crow picture.

    It is so easy and does not take much effort to do bad. It takes much effort and sacrifice to do good. I would rather take the road less traveled.
