    I was born and raised in a fundamentalist, polygamist cult in the mountains of Montana. Although I left my home, my family and my religion as a teenager I was unaware until many years later, the impact that my childhood had over me and the joy that I yearned for. Several years...

    As painful as it can be sometimes,

    we don't have the right to sit on the sidelines and waste the life we've been given... There is always someone out there fighting to live... Lets appreciate the gift of life while we have it... It's so precious

    On The Green Side Of The Earth.

     On March 29th of 2009 I entered St. John's hospital in Clear Lake, Houston TX. I had a ruptured colon and after surgery my family and friends were told that I had less than 20% chance of surviving the night. I was being kept alive by a life support machine. Twenty days...

    I notice how wonderful life is in all the small

    pleasures of life. Usually when I go driving in the back roads somewhere and I have time to think to myself, I notice what a wonderfully enriched life I have and how there is so much more in life I hope to see. I think sometimes people get blinded by or only choose to see what...

    Love It. Love It. Can't Get Enough Out of It.

    Although, to be fair, it's the only state of being I have any first-hand familarity with - so there's no point of reference to use for comparison.  From an outsider's POV though, death looks rather tedious.

    But lately I really couldn't tell you why. I guess I love the drama and waking up every morning knowing somethings going to happen- exciting, mellow, or just boring- it's always a mystery when you first get up.
