Peace is where you find it..

Peace  at 23,000 feet: And at ground zero:

Am I still the same person?

This question came up in discussion with someone who believed they knew me 28 years ago, for a period of about two years – and now claims to know me still. The other asserted that in our recent discussions over the last few months in live chat, that ‘Your personalityRead More

Beautiful….Alizee

Money isn’t everything…but I sure as hell love it. Don’t you?

Yeah..we know this very well don’t we, that ‘money isn’t every thing’? The phrase sickens me. Why pray tell, you must be thinking. Let me try a few substitutions for the word ‘money’ in there: ‘Air’ isn’t everything ‘Sex’ isn’t everything ‘Banana’ isn’t everything ‘Food’ isn’t everything ‘A house’ isn’tRead More
