Forgiveness

26th

January 2012

Isn’t there something in the Bible that talks about how love, True Love, doesn’t need forgiveness?  I like that idea, and I’m not religious at all.
So today I am forgiving myself.  What did I do?  Not much, really.  I didn’t check things out before reacting.  And now I feel somewhat deflated.  Not horribly, just a [...]

Who We Love

20th

January 2012

For some reason I woke up thinking about the terms homosexual and heterosexual.  (It could be the dream I had in which I was a prostitute in an old west brothel, but it doesn’t seem related, not really….)

January 2012

and I’m still here… and I STILL don’t know anything, not really.  I’m ok with that, of course, because if I knew everything, I’d be bored.
Today I asked myself, when was the last time you were responsible TO yourself?  I mean, I’m responsible to others all the time, and I feel responsible for others often [...]
