    I am not a shark.

    For many, life is a journey where we should keep moving on, leaving behind the hurt and the loss. I see them like optimistic sharks, and I admire when they can live to that standard, when their survival seems to depend on the lack of reflection, and on the burial of memories...

    An awesome way to relax is reading to your

    There'S Nothing Sweeter Then A Baby

    I love sleeping with my three month old son in my arms. His fragrant breath ,his soft sweet little body. When he wakes up in the morning he smiles at me and I kiss his delicious cheeks, and velvety double chin as he makes amazing happy faces and goo going sounds.
