Ghosts of the Past…

By on October 24, 2006 in Personal Thoughts

Things… Big events… Little events.. One liners, even.. Haunt me, weeks, months, even years later… Even if I wasn’t wrong. and much more if I was. I catch myself thinking about them, when I’m not doing anything else, or just laying down and thinking. I try to put them to rest, and let things go, […]

And particularly, easy to attack people who will, of course, believe your venom blindly because you know, they think little of themselves. Must make you […]

The post that used to be in this space, was removed, because it made no sense to anybody but me. Though, for what its worth, the post itself was based on feeling left out of a friend’s visit, when that isn’t the case. Communication issues suck. Mood Music Post Follows…

Thoughtful Betrayal

By on February 13, 2006 in Personal Thoughts

Sometimes a needed action becomes very evident in front of you. That the words of others while nice and semi-warm and not hurtful, are actually, just safe.
