Friday, August 26, 2011

Using Vision Boards
Monday, August 22, 2011     

My perspective on life is suffering rather badly these days. I try to act and talk positive and I hope it will keep me up and at it, but sometimes it is very hard. Thanks to the poor choices of earlier decades, I am tired and I am lonely and I s... Read more

on my life and death
Tuesday, December 07, 2010
