I Lost My Muse

    Sad But True

    I have been unable to write in quite some time.  Even though my muse was a lying, cheating (cheating on his wife, not me), sack of @#$%, he was really great for thoughtful material.

    I have lost both of my parents to cancer. It is a terrible disease that hopefully we can end. Too much pain has been caused because of it. Too many people lost.
