    Appointment By Fate Or Whatever You Called It

    I always heard stories about love at first sight. Well, mine was pretty bizarre and it almost like as if it was from a book or a movie. First I want to mention was I am born deaf and I have cochlear implants. One on my left was recent one and my right side was old one. My story...

    Something at first sight

    I am an old guy, I've been through the mill and around the block more than once, I thought that love at first sight was a romantic illusion, a symptom of a mind in need, or perhaps two minds in need, but now I'm not so sure. I can't call my experience 'Love' at first sight, but...

    What Is This?

    It had been a terrible time frankly. I tried and tried to get the mother of my children to move on with her life, so that I could move on with mine. Of course, she was heavily dependent on me so I offered to help her financially. She wouldn't budge one iota. She would sit outside...
