    A Secret Garden

        Sometimes I wish I could break through the cloudy haze that so often surrounds me. The shadows, covering my life.  I want to breathe, I want to run, I want to run away.   Away from myself, away from it all.   But I'd always bring you with me.   I wish we had a secret...

    Hidden

    My secret garden is far from people and their noise and drama; the only gossips welcome there are the birds and squirrels.  Running water talks to itself somewhere under the old oaks and maples, a gentle countertheme to the soft silence.

    It's no secret that most of us ache for simplicity, a place to relax and heal...a hide~away, or "Secret Garden"!! We are told Life is a journey, and we must adjust to the challenges set before us. But...wouldn't it be especially nice to have a magic key in hand? The key...

    Hells Yeah

    I've always wanted something like this. So far, the closest I've gotten to the sort of secret garden that I would like is my dreams. Things are crazy in there, but also mysterious and beautiful. It's like a vaguely familiar maze in my dreams. And the best thing is, there are...

    I Think I Will
