What is progress?

‘I’m not young enough to know everything’.  Oscar Wilde She tried to understand how she had gotten to the point where this specific quote was her philosophy. She often had to read and re-read quotes before she could feel that connection but this  was quite the opposite as a quote, which she’d seen only once, had…

Invisible wall.

Don’t say that B word

Every once in a while I’m graced with a life event worth sharing. Here is one.  I’m seated in the most comfortable way I can.  I’ve been okay or atleast I thought I was okay.  I was actually just looking at the stars and trying to give definitive meanings to random things. I’m in a…
