How do I describe this blog?
A line from "Old School" with a minor tweak.
"My friends, this is a safe place. A place where we can feel free sharing our feelings. Think of my blog as a nest in a tree of trust and understanding. We can say anything here."

Random Acts of Shifeness
Why do I continue to watch "The Following"? Anyone else watching this? It is going along fine then it just does something ridiculous and I want to punch myself in the neck for wasting an hour on this show.
Thanks for your positive words and comments about getting rejected by literary agents. It is going to work out just fine, and this is just part of the journey.
I will be turning a year older next week. Birthdays are not as exciting as they used to be but I am grateful especially in light of recent events that I can celebrate with family and friends. Someone much wiser than me said, "Do not regret growing older, it is a privilege denied to many.
Speaking of those recent events, it definitely has been a difficult week. I have a few friends personally connected to the tragedies in Boston and West, Texas, and I just have them in my thoughts a lot right now. I wish I could do more but at this time all I can tell them is that I am there for them if they need me. I hope tomorrow is a more gentle place for them.
"There are times when there are too few words left to heal us, when what we wish for is to be carried, when all we have left is the hope that tomorrow will be a more gentle place to land than today."
Back to my birthday. If you are wanting to buy me something, I would love a t-shirt cannon. I want to load it up and shoot it at all of the wonderful solicitors who like to come by and tell that I am going to Hell or that I need salvation. And the t-shirt would have something on it like "Romans 2:3." or maybe I will just cut to the chase and have it say "Don't be a dick, man."
This made me laugh.
I might need one of these to make it through the weekend.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
