    I Could Never

    Ideas come to me at late hours of the night, I could never sit down for that many hours without my butt getting numb. I enjoy being ouside. No, I could never work a 9 to 5.

    It Would Have Been Easier To Forgive.

    24 years ago I was supposed to be aborted. My parents made the mature decision that they were not emotionally ready to raise a child. It would have been one of those despised "convenience abortions." My mother made an appointment and went to a clinic. Because she started...

    Come to think about it, especially those who complain endlessly about their spouses (and yet do not move on), I have to say most people deserve each other! Just a thought.
