    Finding My Way - When I am completely lost

    and can't find my way writing helps. Once I start writing I can start to clear the confusion out of my mind. It is like releasing all the build up worries away. It may not solve things but it does help. And sometimes I manage to workout what is bothering me. It helps me to see...

    I Give You My Word.

    Sticks and stones may break your bones but words and thoughts are most powerful. Before the word there should be thought. Some thoughts should be abandoned because giving them any kind of energy is just not worth while. Some thought should grow and be carefully nurtured to become...
