    The Football Game That May Have Explained It All...

    As I look back on my life,

    I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.

    You might go where ever you want

    but your strings are tied to my mind. I try to heal but a harmless thought manages to refresh my wounds. My heart dismisses all my persuasions and rebels against me. I tried to uproot you from me but my heart threatens to tag along. My mistakes, standing at a corner, look at me...

    Heart And Mind Blended

    Somethings I do with my mind learn, organize, and process information.  I do this well when I chose to.  Often I choose to let my mind wander.  Without the time to let things flow I lose my creativity.  When my mind is in control I have to be task oriented.  When my heart...

    When You Are of Little Use....

    Humans tend to look at everything from its utility point of view. Every single entity that we come across is attached a value. The value may not be monetary. In fact, it may not even be perceived as value. Most would use the term significance rather than value to describe it. If...

    Helps Me Write + Be Creative.

    Being introspective has helped me immensely in writing and art. It has given me the chance to be really deep in my work. I don't have to *force* myself to be introspective, I simply am. Some people I've known I think have doubted that I am, or have thought me pretentious for...

    Sometimes I image what it would feel like to

    die, to not exist... but something comes to mind. It must feel like what happens before I was born. Nothing, nothing at all. Thinking is merely a by-product of thinking itself. What is without thinking? Come to think of it, it all originated from the isolated physical system...

    Who Am I?

    Who am I?  I spend the majority of my time trying to determine who I am and what I want from this life.  I have a difficult time trying to pick the words that will present a nice little tied up bundle labeled "redfroggle".  I am not sure I will ever be...
