    Solitude And Self-doubt

    I think my story starts when I was a little child. I was often very sick and missed a lot of school. Children, being children, would shun me when I returned to school because I couldn't run around with them and they had always moved on and formed other friendships anyway.....I...

    :) Well, not really. I would get too lonely :)

    Instead, I will start a community, a community of people who agree with me.

    Where Have Gentleness And Respect Gone?

    I have always found it hard and confusing to understand people, often people say or do one thing, and will tell you that they meant something else. Is this because they they are not honest with themselves? and if they are not, why not? it is this that I don't understand. I am...

    My Dream

    The forest is so beautiful. I want to be a sociable person when I read someone's blog. But after several days' consideration, I found it's more fit for me to be a hermit. The feeling is not just start right now, but from my childhood. But I wasn't awared of it at the time. I...

    I have thought many times,

    If Only I Was Born a Few Hundred Years Earlier
