Maybe it’s pride, but…

Transitions can bring about the good, the bad, and the ugly. They can show you what you're made of. They can illuminate the true nature of certain relationships in your life. They can drive you a bit crazy. Or they can fill you with confidence. They can also knock you on your ass. We've all [...]

A note, to Clouds, on balance.

Dear Clouds, I'm sorry to tell you this but balance is bullshit. *read this article. it's full of slap you in your face truth -- which i think is some of the best kind of truth there is. like this one: More than 50 years ago, the United States was roiled by the feminist and [...]
