    I Am Living My Life On Hold

    Perhaps it hasnt always been that way, but in recent years I have felt that my life is on hold. I do have plans, and hopes and dreams but somehow they quite not materialize. I feel like my life is an eternal dress rehearsal and that I will never get to go to the Dance .
