I'm exhausted, but I wanted to let you all know that I'm still kickin'. Thank you so much for the comments in regard to the death in my family. I'll post more about that later, but I don't have the energy right now.
I was just flipping through my paper journal reading through random entries, and I decided I'd give you an inside peek. Sort of. Here are some random quotes and scribblings from years gone by:
I'm waiting for the blood to flow to my fingers,
I'll be alright when my hands get warm.
Ignoring the phone, I'd rather say nothing.
I'd rather you'd never heard my voice.
Too late to be gracious
And you do not warrant long goodbyes.
You're calling too late.
