  • Fear of Heights

    You start out at the bottom. Nothing but earth envelops you. Placing a firm hand to the soil, you no longer care if it will stain your hands, your clothes. You're already filthy with the burden of life. You force yourself up, taking every fiber of yo...

  • Please Share

    I know at times it seems futile to share.  It seems that no one is listening.  It seems that the message never gets through.  But someone is listening, and you may be changing their life. I know I've talked and blogged about it before.  The moment du...
