Oh, no, my darling - watch your selfish steps. Yes, I can give you one so much better - This device … Continue reading Magic Machine

Breaking Through

The new year, 2016, is already a month and a half gone. So far, I've celebrated turning another trip around the sun on January 29 and turning 34 years old. I do count seeing another year a blessing.

Rejection

Humans are all the same, Yet - so very different. Fears bring us to shame... Though we can be brilliant.   Speaking before an eager crowd, Some watch with an open mind.

Rule Breaker

  Once in a great while, you meet someone you just connect with.  There is no rhyme or reason to it, you didn't grow up together.
