Awareness… against my will

Let's cut the shit and get real. Let's really lay it out there. So much so that let's not even soften the word shit with an asterix to replace the i. And of course when I say "let's" that actually means "me" as in I'm about to cut through my own BS so I'm giving you all … Continue reading Awareness… against my will

So…what do you want?

One of my favorite sayings of Dr. Phil is, "you've got to name it to claim it."

Eternity? Who me?

I'll just come right out and say it: I don't like the idea of spending "eternity" playing a harp.
