Living your own life or the world living your life.

Proof positive that I speak in a foreign language.

They power of ‘they’.

For many years I’ve been referring to the power of the herd instinct. Nobody believes me of course – because I am a NOBODY! That’s fine cuz I don’t need people (the herd) to validate what I might say or think. History proves me right. In essence when people takeRead More
