    I Crave It

    I control my emotions. More often than not I don't react when insults are being slung in my direction. I control my weight. It's easy to make myself fat or better yet make myself skinny. I control my effort. Sometimes it's all there, and sometimes it simply isn't. But everything...

    Fate

    It is an absolute fact, I have no control over my life. I'm not down or depressed or unhappy, I just admit the fact. Years ago I came to the conclusion that the will or one's own means to intervene and steer events is only part of the game of life. The other half is beyond our...
