    Don't Look Now.......

    What is life, but a series of crossroads, from birth to death, crossroads in themselves? You know, I'm not unhappy where I ended up, I have more than enough of everything I want, but as I grow older and look back at the directions my life has taken, I can't help but examine those...

    Cross Vs. Crossroads
