How long is a long good-bye?

Lately and more than once, that irritating detail known as "time" has saturated my mind in an especially tense and poignant manner. Tick –tock. Tick-tock. Shut off that annoying sound. Can time be disguised as sound? It can be for some.

Time can relate to sound, whether it's the sound we ...

Why is purity no longer valued? I've often asked myself this question, especially through my high school years.

Listening to Dale’s advice

A while back, a messy problem loomed ahead. I don't like confrontation. If that makes me less than a person then consider me to be itty bitty. Life, I figure, is too short for squabbling. My motto is "whenever possible, step out of the way."
