    Today I will buy a single, pink, fresh tulip, and take it to the airport. I will be there just in time, at noon, to see the flight arrive. He will not come, as he should, but anyway I will be there, waiting until the last person comes from customs.  I feel so sorry for...

    Why Me?

    And It's Pathetic...

    I don't know why I ruminate and struggle with the strong sense of loss and grief over my life. I feel very powerless to change circumstance and even more so over my attitude.
