    A Long and Lonely Journey

    I thank God that I was born into a family where going to church was 'optional' and not 'mandatory'.  My mind wasn't forced closed by all of the strict rules of conduct enforced by the church that would guarantee me an eternal seat in hell if I broke them. Instead, ...

    Still Got Some Way to Go....

    But I think I'm getting there :)   I'm still young. And everyday I'm learning more about myself. That's the truth part. I don't know myself completely, but I've noticed a change in myself in the past year. I guess it's just 'growing up', but it feels good to...

    Still Searching...

    I ended up on this website because I googled "searching for truth" (it's also the subtitle of my own website).   At the moment, I'm still searching... Over the past few years I've drifted from the general belief that 'there is a God' to Wicca...

    Love Is Within My Nature

    My aunt remembers one thing about my Grandmother, who passed away when I was about seven.  My Grandmother told my aunt that I have a loving heart, and I found this out much later from my aunt when I was fifteen.  When I was about three and a half, there was a woman who...
