    I Can Not Own What Is Not Mine

    I have begun to realize through self discovery ( and the support of so many here ), that I can not be everything for everybody. I have to take time for me. One of the things I gave up years ago was my music. I spent hours and hours practicing, composing; I had...

    PerceptionI've been doing some soul searching

    lately, taking stock of my life, my goals, my wants, needs. It's been a tough but good experience, and I feel renewed and refreshed. I feel purpose and drive again. I lost my way for a bit. I suppose we all do at some point or another. Getting lost felt good for a while too. I...
