    Independence Is Life..

    I almost died spiritually recently. I have Cerebral Palsy and I have no right to have my own life due to uptight Australian government regulations on in-home support/personal care and agency rules. I will fight for my rights forever, please support me.

    Having had lost it for much of the first half

    of my life, I'll be damned if I'll ever relinquist it again. I have it, it's nobody else's to take or compromise in any way. I refuse to be effectly enslaved for what's left of my life. Life is too short to live miserably and in somebody else's shadow, to sacrifice my own needs...

    It Is Written In The Stars

    Just checked Rob Brezsney's "Free Will Astrology" sight for this week's horoscope, and I received the most precious reading.  It is absolutely what I needed to hear:   Historians trace the origin of Poland as a nation to the year 966. It mostly thrived...

    Well...

    Until

    It is the opposite of flags and hymns, it is a sentiment with deep roots. I get nervous when I am claimed even by a person I like. Freedom rules my inner world, the only space there is where I feel safe enough because nobody can see me there. In that still expanding realm I...

    It Works For Me

    One of the benefits of maturing is seeing yourself accurately.  In my 20s I tried to be what I thought others wanted me to be, my 30s were a time of introspection spent figuring out what I wanted and needed to live the life I was meant to live. I spent very little, almost no...

    The Pull Of The Tide

    Not Giving It Up Again

    Independence is something everyone should value like a pile of gold. I had it, lost it and got it back and now I don't think it will ever be far from my side. It's not like I when to jail and had the door close behind me, I gave it up slowly, like sand falling through an hour...
