    How Can I?

    How can I find that "something" that I cannot define? Hm, that sounds a lot like "If a tree falls in the forest..." doesn't it?  Must be in one of those existential moods today.

    Other Lifestyles

    I spend nights awake wondering why I can't seem to be happy. I feel like I'm missing a piece of my soul but can't seem to find it. I spent most of my life trying to feel that void with clothes, shoes, purses, material items that only made me feel good for a little bit. I was...

    There Again I Might Have!

    So much has happened in the last 18 months. My life has changed and taken a new direction. So many doors have started to open. I just might have a glimpse of what I'm truly looking for. Maybe it's my destiny.
