This is not me... I don't get political. Never have. It's not because I would struggle to carry on an intelligent conversation about the subject. It's because I have very little interest in being talked into or out of my views on issues, or more directly, the ideals that I allow to govern my life … Continue reading Out of the “No” and Into the “Know”
You’re Not Making Sense to Me
For the daily prompt: Surface Children. They're among some of most miraculous creations on the planet, wouldn't you agree? Go with me for a moment.

I see a light…Wait, it’s a freight train!
For the Mistake-Makers Did you ever see yourself as this tall figure, standing on top of the highest mountain on Earth, looking down at all of the poor, unfortunate people who aren't you?

Both seemed a little too long, and I figured, if you're still reading, you get what I'm trying to say here...or at least you will. (Insert Smiley here) I Am Awesome! Aren't you?

“I don’t really care if you’re sorry…”
That's what a young lady said to me once as I was trying to assist her with a pressing issue. She was stressed, frustrated, annoyed, and any other word that you can think of that means she was not happy. I thought that telling her how sorry I was would buy me some points so … Continue reading “I don’t really care if you’re sorry…”
