    You Know...i Guess I Do.

    Not that I don't run into "kindred spirits" from time to time. And really, all I have to do is go back to a Dead show and see "me", 20 years ago, packing up his Guatemalan knapsack, tucking in his dreads, and diving into a over packed truck to head off to the next show... to...

    I Used To Feel Alien, Now I'm Just Different

    As a young girl, I seem to always remember looking at the other kids around me, knowing that I wasn't quite like them. I didn't exactly feel alien to them, but I was just...different. Life seemed to swirl around me, and I would timidly watch it, wondering where I fit in, waiting...

    I Feel Like I Am The Only One On Earth.

    some days I wake up and think that the earth is filled with people in denial, filled with greed and others in poverty. Of course they are not the only humans on earth. But at times it seems this world is based on so much negativity and beliefs of "This won't happen to me" that we...

    Absolutely! I am unique!

    Oh sure. There are others who walk like me. Talk like me. Maybe even look like me! But they won't know what I know. They won't feel what I feel. They won't see what I see.

    At work I feel lonely.

    There are always talkative sociable people that laugh and keep conversations going. Then there is me. I feel like I can't hold interesting conversations with people.
