They're GrrrreeeaT! Guess what I had for breakfast..*laughing* I think sometimes I think to hard, for my mind becomes cluttered with all sorts of visions I guess is the word I'll use to describe what goes on inside. So many ideas, thoughts, plans, dreams, wants and desires packed in there that they become lost. Sometimes forgotten. Sometimes tangled with one another. It's hard to explain the feeling of so many things crammed into one space, on spot at an instance of time, especially when those things are not something tangible, nor something that you can touch, feel or see, but just thoughts of what life means to me.
