    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...

    Foreverwood

    That's what I'm looking for. I'm looking for my "Foreverwood". I think if someone were just to read that, it would sound stupid, but there is history behind that name. Foreverwood is home, it is family and love. It is beauty and God, but most of all...it is peace to me. I'm...

    Looking for someone I can spend my life with

    I am not looking for a perfect woman, because I know that none of them exist. However, I am looking and waiting for the woman I know I will spend the rest of my life with. It has been very frustrating lately, because the type of woman that I am looking for, doesn't seem to be in...

    That the song of the same name by U2 puts it as aptly as can be put.

    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.

    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.
