modern parenting is harmed by the public

I no longer have a Facebook page, so this blog is going to become more bloggy in the future.

the oracle

there are times in life when

you realize

your life is not your own;

you are not breathing,

you are breath.

you are not living,

you are life.

in those moments,

you become One

with

All That Is

All That Was

All That Will Be

than living,

my friend.

there is more to life

than you care to know.

OPEN

and feel the wonder

of what it means to

EXIST.
