“I’m hangin’ on… you’re all that’s left to hold on to.” – Bono in Red Hill Mining Town Yesterday I had two conversations about relationships. You know, the romantic kind. Aren’t they exciting? I mean, isn’t the thrill of discovering that someone else is thinking about you just priceless? It’s a little more than obvious… Continue reading still hangin’ on
Last night, I saw the movie “Crash” with a group. It basically told several inter-weaving stories of people dealing poorly with people. The themes included rage, impatience, vengeance, racism, power-trips and more.

The force… Continue reading what all did you do today?
