I’m Sorry.

Sometimes, you just have to DO IT. That thing that scares the crap out of you, that thing that pushes you and stretches you and keeps you awake at night….you’ve just got to DO IT. This is me. Right now. In my life. In so many instances, I have hidden behind the fear of rejection, judgment, and…

Being Friendless…and Eating Sausages

At the time of this writing, I have 1101 friends on Facebook. That seems crazy to me, considering not long ago, I was virtually “friendless”. 1101 people have told me that they want to know who I am. They want to see what I am interested in and they are curious about what I have to say.…
