If Looks Could Kill

My culprit signature would be high heel footprint everywhere I struck and, though the FBI would trace my tousled mane-sightings, I would always be just out of reach and beyond prosecution.

Life Like No One is Watching

“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose,” Janis Joplin crooned from the dust of my 1970’s record collection.

Knowing: How To Listen To Your True Self!

What do I do when I don’t know what to do about a situation? I turn inside mySelf to the greatest resource and comfort that there is, the Soul within. Maybe there is a relationship in my life that I have chosen to be troubled over. I might be worried about money or a health condition of a loved one.
