2004

the snowflakes were huge today, falling in the graying time of the day, a sort of coldness settled over the soul, one that seems to be the norm instead of the exception. I need to find the motivation to fight my way back into the light, but it is so hard to do with my sunshine gone.

as the talk of war goes, and the bombs fall, a sickening feeling comes over me, deep prayer and thought for all of those involved, may wisdom, and good judgment be with those who have control over so many lives. May the past not be repeated, and may the future hold the promise once again of peace.

2000

Sunshine through the window, sort of a mixed blessing, for with it's beauty I do not want to sleep, but yet I know the need for it. So many thoughts have been flowing through my mind as of late. I wonder where my direction is, it seems that I am even more lost than what I was before. I picture in my mind a Castle with the bridge to the moat being bombed, and the only way to escape the castle is to either swim the moat, or walk a tightrope across, with the fear of drowning or the fear of falling a constant reminder of how fragile my spirit is right now.

1998

Have you ever had one of those days? Well today is one of them for me. I did the dumbest most stupidest thing I could have ever done. I pushed the wrong button and lost a dream.

I touched something and it broke. I picked up something and I dropped it. I walked and fell. Yes I've had one of those days. It was a day I should have stayed in bed, and never awoken. Yes I've had one of those days

I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.
