on the way to someone else's house!

And God bless the child that's got a song.
- Nanci Griffith

to me most of them are fiction.

life as a writer because I get to be someone else,
someplace else for three and a half minutes,
just like the listener.

Friendships to brighten your being,

Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
