    Most Of The Places I Stay End With A Number '9', Or Adds To A '9'

    The only one time It did not - I had a real traumatic experience.Not that I choose that number - but they come to me by itself - It's very circumstancial, and the other I bought a pant and in it - was a sticker - that said - 'Inspected by operator 27' .

    And a Journey.

    I am a soul... I have a body - for now. I very much think we are spirits having the human experience. The spiritual side... makes everything else look not so colorful, if you know what I mean. It seems more real than the physical in many ways.

    I Was Born Before The Sun

    The universe knew me before it's first infant cry. Wee are all creature of the light and into that we shall return.  To be alive is to be one of the many forms the universe takes as it expands.  We have never separated from the source.
