Get Off My Lawn

I can't tell if he's laughing or crying.

Punch Line

I once again have the honour of writing a guest post at A Holistic Journey. This has been a great experience and I invite you all to head over there and enjoy.

  3. I look back at my childhood and read stories like yours and I wonder how the hell we grew up to be reasonably functional adults. With all of the abuse and everything else that goes on in our formative years, it’s a marvel to me that our society, as screwed up as it is, functions as well as it does.

    I’m not really sure what I just said … all I know is that it seems filled with contradictions.

  5. Your post was heartfelt. I couldn’t help but feel, I know I must have hurt someone with my words like that in my life. Someone who I don’t remember saying anything to purposely hurt them, someone I don’t remember at all, but who has lived with the hurt you described all their life. Makes me consider the words I speak today. Not always successful, but now I know I know how (and sure try to) go back and say “I am sorry”. Only wish I could do that for the ones I have forgotten over the years of growing up. Excellent post! And one, again Holistic Journey, would lead me to read. She is awesome.. Always making one consider their words:) blessings neighbor, denise
