    Time does not heal all wounds. Cuts, nicks, scrapes? Maybe. A minor lesion, sure. But wounds? When wounds turn to black scabs that flake away like so many burnt pages, what is left is the raw, rosy pink tinge of new tissue.

I’d rather just curl up in bed, but…you know…friends. You don’t get to see them as much as you’d like to and it feels good to support them in their endeavors. And sometimes […]

    Y’all know how much I like self-tests. Especially those psychological in nature. Perhaps this is due to my lack of insight into my own psyche. I don’t know how to explain why I am the way I am. Hell, I’m not even sure I want to know. But I’m sure you, like myself, have wondered. Wanna unlock the mysteries of my mind!? Me neither. […]
