    A Happy and Full Life

     I am not content to live a life watching TV.  I embrace every friendship and love I ever have and do my best to take care of them.   I enjoy the journey as much as the destination.   "Life is the classroom; Love is the lesson"

    The Light Beyond Darkness

    I want to live life fully without worrying. I wonder vaguely under the hazy agony swirling around my mind whether or not I will ever fully live or if I will keep merely surviving. In my darkness, I cannot see how badly damaged I am, but I guess from the pain, which is plenty but...
