    Squished Grapes Are Just One Big No-no

    Good Bye

    I'm in a prison of my own making for the past twenty-years, and the past can't be changed, but I won't imprison myself again to anyone or anything. Not to LOVE, nor DUTY, or OBLIGATION, or GUILT.  I won't throw more good years away....not even a day. I'm breaking these chains...
