    A New Life

    It is difficult to walk when until only a few years ago all you knew was to crawl. It is difficult to see when until only a few years ago all you knew was darkness. It is difficult to understand when until a few years ago all you knew was what you were told to. The scars that...

    I Crave Substantial Connections.

    I crave substantial connections.  Everybody needs them.  But some are more in touch with that truth than others.  Some pretend the shallow relations they have are enough.  If they were to peel the layers of self-deceit, they would discover that is not true.  But we lose our...
