    The Restless Times.

    There's a restlessness that lives in me, and it asks 'what are you striving for, who are you pining for, why are you trying so hard!' And I just lie there and chant 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know'...until sleep overwhelms me. At times I have the persistent, niggling...

    Lonely Wanderer

    Sometimes I like my free spirit. I get very excited about things and love and thoroughly appreciate life experience. A lot of the time though, it gets lonely being too much of a free spirit for stability. I have a hard time being tied down to anything because it seems like...

    I Feel Very Restless At Times When I Write Down Something.

    I feel very restless at times when I write something.There is sudden rush of emotions. I am overpowered by my emotions. Writing is not a release for me in these times. I don't feel at peace with myself .

    I can't focus on one thing if there's no need.  And if I do, my mind is still roaming to see the picture from as much sides as possible.  I have a restless spirit indeed.  It was an asset mostly because it's a great tool to fix problems.  When there's...

    Restless,

     I enjoy change, when things are the same for to long it makes me nervous and I usually have to change something. I like learning new things and experimenting with different ideas when I can.

    I am, and always have been a free spirit trapped in a human body. I feel often as though there is too much of me to live in this small cell of skin and bone. I often moved as a young kid, which i think attributed to my nomad spirit. I will more than likely always a person on the...

    That's Me

    It's the "Tiger" in me. The Chinese say that it is very difficult to have a daughter born under the sign of Tiger. They are hard to marry off. Too aggressive. I agree.
