    I Have A Dream...

    Love

    I knew I loved my partner the second I saw her smile. As she smiled at me, my whole insides gleamed and I realized something. I loved her. What is love? Is it the thing that we look for our whole lives since our mothers first held us as an infant? Is it a eternal devotion towards...

    Peace and Harmony

    I remember being a very young girl, being at peace and happy.  Then things started changing.  They all involved men and alcoholism.  My peace ended in 1966.  Three different men saw to that, all in their own way.  I did have my beautiful cousins who...

    There is so much you sacrifice

    once you decide to live with another. Apart from the lack of privacy,control,and space, you lose more important things. You lose inner peace sharing the same energy. As hard as you might try to not let others influence your inner peace, when you're living with others that are...

    By Design, By Nature, By Desire.

    As I see it the opposite of Peace is everything else. It is a fundamental entropy, as perceived by a living being; truly an infinite entity. But one can direct, act, and espouse it. I try. Please, everyone, do so too.
