    The equations are quite complex.

    The philosophies are very involved. Illustrating the book is a colourful premise.

    Who isn't? If anyone thinks they have life

    totally figure out, they are fooling themselves. There are always unanswered questions, mysteries that we won't ever understand. That's part of the fun (and the pain) of being alive.

    We call it a broken heart- that anguish, that searing pain, when someone leaves. If they die, eventually (one hopes) there is acceptance. They have gone to a better place; they are at peace, one day I will be reunited with them. These phrases help us cope; they are comforting...

    Having to be on my own again,

    dreaming about that day... I realize how much I don't know... and I'm too old to not know all the stuff that I'm missing. Are there any others like me out there? Realizations hit me pretty good lately. Things like "you need to learn to shut down your emotions sometimes...

    It's A Process

    I wonder if there's anyone who really feels they have life "figured out" at least for themselves, and knows exactly "who they are."  I feel as though I'm constantly learning new things about myself and life everyday, and it's things that I think I...

    Neverending Task

    I don't believe we ever stop "figuring life out". As we grow, our brains change and we learn different things, which then prompt us to behave differently, and the process goes on and on until we return to the place from which we came.

    Still Figuring Out

    As I sit here in my room locked away from the crowd. I feel tied down. I am locked in my room as I wait for a change a turning point in my life. I miss those lovely walks along the crowd those smiles I received and gave those strangers. I am bewildered by horns of vehicles on...

    Just Merely Survival

    Can't believe how thing everyday went to be so common, I live in an ordinary life which is the only goal is just a merely survival. Live an ordinary and predicted life is so boring. Same things happen day by day. Nothing to be expected to happen.
