    Missing

    I believe that most humans live their life feeling some sort of void in their lives, and they try to fill that void throughout their life. This links with the universal purpose of humans to 'love and be loved.' Love fills that void. Even if its temporary... And when that love...

    Missing Some Kind of "Human" Programming

    I think that I'm missing some sort of programming common to either human beings or society.  I can listen to a conversation between two people, watch them relate to one another like everything they are saying makes complete sense, and find so many holes in the words spoken...

    Something Isn'T Right....

    It's a feeling I have. Something I've never felt before. I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it is yet....but it's needling at my soul, like a splinter that I can't remove. I don't fit in here. I don't belong here. I'm supposed to be somewhere else. Or doing something...

    Something Important....

    So I've tried to be optimistic as of late, even when it felt like I was being put through a food processor. I've been on a diet and exercising frequently, and I've lost some weight. It's a start, but a good one. I smile and have been more nagging than usual, hoping something will...
