    "Road Works Ahead" My Friends

    We’re constantly building foundations of stone, starting from pebbles standing alone.  Forming a path guided by a sign as we begin our journey through time. Along the way we go up hill and down, through rain and snow reaching crossroads not knowing where to go. When...

    Effort And Patience

    Although I'm easy to get along with, more often than not, I'm often misunderstood. Sure, I'll come off as some sex-crazed perv but I'm more than a hedonist. Get to know me before you assume I'm some deviant.

    A Friend To Have More In Common With

    I have a few friends, but they don't really get me. They accept me- but they just don't really understand. I would just love to have a friend that I have stuff in common with, and well, gets me.
