    I was meditating earlier this evening.

    Thoughts came and went about past loves and partners who I've been fortunate to spend time with. Then I heard the words "How sad it is to have said hello and goodbye to a soulmate." It is sad. I believe I've said hello and goodbye to such a person. It's not a crushing sadness...

    Love And Its Bittersweet Memoir...

    Sometimes losing your love is like pouring a drink outside of your glass. You know there was something in there, you can still smell it and taste it but you can never put the same drink back unless you get another drink. The irony is, that's the only drink you want but there's...
